NC4RSO - Mission Statement
The "National Network of Prison Nonprofits" is the national resource for community reentry programs. We invest in community groups (primarily nonprofits) delivering programs and services in jails, prisons, and re-entry. NC4RSO is where "prison and reentry nonprofits" network nationally to increase our collective impact!
NC4RSO - Introduction
Community organizations provide programs in jails, prisons, and re-entry. Hope happens when people connect with people. 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, NC4RSO is the national voice on topics of common member interest and we work to increase community-based prison-related services.
NC4RSO - Who We Are
NC4RSO, as the U.S. umbrella association for community groups within corrections (prison charities):
- Recognizes the need for communities to engage in making communities safe
- Support tangibly corrective paths for current and formerly incarcerated persons
- Create/encourage community contexts that reduce the potential for high-risk people to head toward 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.
NC4RSO member organizations deliver prison and reentry programs such as mentoring, parenting programs, nonviolent communication classes, education, religious prison ministries, and local reentry initiatives (sometimes known as faith-based and community partnerships).
NC4RSO is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization
