(This amendment provides $100,000 the first year from the general fund to Providence Ministries International, Inc., to support the organization's "B.A.M" program, which is an acronym for "Becoming A Man." The program identifies individuals who have not developed their full potential due to problems with substance abuse, lack of education, or prior incarceration. To change problem behaviors, the program requires these individuals to participate in a rigorous training and work program and provides a mentor to lend support and measure the participants' progress.)
