NEW Reentry Council

By working together, we can improve our community and meet our goal of reducing recidivism and victimization. By accomplishing this goal, we will reduce the costs of incarceration and increase public safety while helping persons with criminal histories to become contributing members of society.

Our Mission

The NEW Reentry Council brings together all stakeholders to offer assistance and resources to help individuals with criminal backgrounds become law-abiding citizens and to enhance public safety.
