Montville pastor donates land for facility for newly released inmates 

Many inmates look forward to the day they are released from custody, back into the free world, but for others, release day arrives wrought with anxiety about what comes next. For those with a felony record, finding jobs can be difficult, as can securing a place to live that doesn’t put them directly back into the circumstances that led them to jail in the first place. Without a job, it can be difficult or impossible to fund even basic things such as transportation, food, and shelter.

One local man, who counts divine inspiration as a motivating factor, is determined to help those ending their incarceration by offering them a place to get back on their feet.

While the facility is still in its planning phase, Peter Sheff, Waldo County treasurer and pastor of Abundant Grace Church, says he doesn’t worry too much about where the funds for the project will come from.
