Description: The NEW (Nash, Edgecombe, & Wilson County) Reentry Council is a coalition of community stakeholders that works to reduce/eliminate barriers to successful reentry. This is done, in part, by providing supportive services to help returning citizens overcome reentry challenges. The NEW Reentry Council empowers people with criminal backgrounds to become self-sufficient and enhances public safety by reducing recidivism and victimization.
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.
