NC4RSO - Mission Statement
Our mission is to support community groups (primarily nonprofits) delivering programs and services in jails, prisons, and re-entry and to support the growth of additional such organizations.
NC4RSO - Introduction
Community organizations throughout the U.S. provide valuable services in and around jails, prisons, and re-entry. Services include preventative programming for high risk individuals, services for incarcerated individuals (rehabilitative programming, community connections, faith-based activities, support for families of incarcerated individuals, educational services, books for prisoners, etc.), community re-entry services for incarcerated individuals returning to the community, public education, etc.
While individual groups provide specific services within the overall justice context, the National Coalition of Community-Based Correctional and Community Re-entry Service Organizations (NC4RSO) acts as a national voice on topics of common member interest and works toward increasing community-based prison-related services throughout the U.S. There is strength in numbers.
NC4RSO - Who We Are
NC4RSO, as an umbrella association for community groups within corrections, recognizes the need for communities to engage in making communities safe, support tangibly corrective paths for current and formerly incarcerated individuals, and to create/encourage community contexts that reduce the potential for high-risk demographic groups to head toward paths of crime and incarceration. Individual organizations address specific aspects of these topics; as a coalition, NC4RSO increases the number of community-based corrections-related services, advocates for objectives of common interest for member organizations, broadens prison-related community engagement, and supports the development of topic and/or region-specific corrections-related initiatives.
