70×7 Muskegon will be a core contributing organization to Muskegon’s declining incarceration rates and increasing economic growth as second chances empower returning citizens to secure financial sustainability and help grow a vibrant community.
70x7 Muskegon offers Christ-centered programs and collaborative services to overcome employment barriers of reentry and recovery.
Muskegon County’s incarceration recidivism rates (returns to prison within 3 years of release) continue to exceed the Michigan state average of 34%. 70×7 Muskegon programs and services are using elimination of employment barriers and mentoring, not only to reduce recidivism, but to give those struggling with addiction and joblessness a new chance at a good life.
“70×7 believed I could change and helped me get the skills I needed to stay sober and to get a good job. – Tony
We believe in:
Dignity: We are all created in the image of God. Having the dignity of work: God created us to work. Work can increasingly provide what families need. Work is the solution to poverty and the frustration of dependency.
Forgiveness: Is God’s Way. Second chances, restoration and reconciliation are God’s design.
Purpose: To personally know the God Who created me, has a plan for my life, and wants me to find and develop the special gifts He’s given me.
Hope: That life will be better. God can and will change my future.
Relationships: Personal responsibility and accountability depend on relationships – with God and with one another.
Sustainability: For long term financial health for our participants and the organization; so we serve our participants and Muskegon well.
Extraordinary service to the people of Muskegon County: To our participants, to our donors, to our volunteers. To everyone in Muskegon who longs to see our community and the people here thrive and connected with one another.
