Down No More


Supporting Second Chances, Fresh Starts & Positive Living

Down No More provides friendship and mentoring to our incarcerated brothers as they transition out of prison and into communities in the San Diego area. 

The goal is complex, but our method is simple: Help reduce prison recidivism using friendship and understanding.

If you are interested in helping people who have faced challenges integrate back into the community, consider joining us as a volunteer.


Our first duty is to do no harm. We require prospective mentors to complete the following:

  1. A background check.  Please email this form to Keren Mondaca, a staff person at the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego, for processing.  Your personal information will remain confidential.  If you are able, please contribute $25 to cover the cost of this background check.
  2. Safeguarding God's People training.  This free online training will take about 40 minutes and can be accessed by following the instructions at this link beginning at the "To Enroll" section.  Please complete the first two modules entitled "I am Sam" and "It Happened to Me" and a third module on "Policies".
  3. Mentor Profile Form.  This will give us a better sense of your interest in participating and hopefully help you clarify what you hope to offer and gain from this experience.
