NEW Reentry Council, representing Nash, Edgecombe and Wilson counties, was established in 2013. Stakeholders represented on the local reentry council include nonprofit organizations, community-based service providers, faith-based organizations and fair-chance employers. This cross-representation of government and community stakeholders helps the local reentry council develop a comprehensive approach to addressing reentry issues.

 

Our team collaborates with local, state and national organizations to provide assistance and resources to help individuals with criminal backgrounds become law-abiding citizens and to enhance public safety. By working together, we will improve our communities and meet our goal of reducing recidivism and victimization, ensuring that persons with criminal histories become contributing members of society.

We served 372 people in 2020.

Our Mission

The NEW Reentry Council’s mission is to strengthen our communities by engaging with local, state, regional and federal partners and stakeholders to provide the services necessary to ensure that returning citizens overcome reentry challenges.
