A Place to Call Home
A New Way of Life provides services for less than half the cost of incarceration. On average, 8 out of 10 residents in our SAFE homes meet annual benchmarks identified as crucial for successful community reentry. Success is not linear, it does not look the same for everyone, but we journey with our residents through several stages of reentry, providing support and encouragement along the way.
- We assist residents in obtaining IDs and Social Security cards, applying for public assistance where appropriate, and dealing with any outstanding debts, such as child support.
- We support our residents in court appearances and in meeting the conditions of parole or probation.
- We encourage residents in their sobriety, helping them find a sponsor and participating in community 12-step programs.
- We partner with community-based organizations for their expertise in employment and career development.
- For residents who are parents, we begin the process of regaining custody or rebuilding solid and healthy relationships with children.
Contact Workforce Development
Rejoining the workforce is an important part of reentry after incarceration. Not only does it reduce recidivism, but it fosters independence, deepens confidence, and creates ties to the community. We know that systems-impacted individuals are talented and capable individuals, whose flourishing is harmed by systemic discrimination. We are working with regional employers and educational institutions to reverse this discrimination and create a prison to college and career pipeline.
