We take clients by case manager referral only. Please refer your client using the form on our Referral Page. 

A case manager is an individual working for an agency or organization that is aiding you in coordination of services related to anything from health, housing, employment, community resources, etc. For example, a probation or parole officer would be a case manager assigned to you by a criminal justice system.

The first step after referral is for a potential client to attend an AMF Informational Session & Orientation. They occur every 2nd and 4th Saturday at the African American Boys Harvest Foundation (AAYHF). Please check our calendar for details and dates. Orientations are provided by Mary Moran of MEM Consulting. This orientation is 2 hours and covers the following topics:

  • The 3 most important documents needed to sell yourself
  • How to answer the top 10 interview questions
  • What resources are out there for Justice Involved Men, Women and Youth (JIMWY)
  • What W.I.T. is and why it is ¬†important
  • Employers that are willing to hire individuals with criminal histories

Giving to Receive

“Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need. -Gillian Anderson

AMF believes that everyone serves a purpose in our communities. In order to receive services such as bus passes, work-related expense vouchers, and resources beyond the initial orientation, we ask that clients participate in community service. Clients can accrue volunteer time in return for services. The current hourly rate of volunteer time in the US is $21.79 (2011). For example, if a client is in need of a monthly bus pass ($30), they are required to show proof of volunteering at an approved agency or with AMF for approximately 1.5 hours.
