This video explains our vison and mission of the organization.
This video provides testimony from one of our former clients that graduated from the program.
This is one of the facility's common areas. It serves multiple purposes. For example, our residents can have breakfast, lunch and dinner outside. The instructors can also host their classes in this area for a change of environment.
We recently employed students of his Urban Craft Academy to do some painting around our facility. They did an amazing job! We are proud to partner with Bill Dozier's Urban Craft Academy, which provides programs that utilize skill development, support services, & mentorship in the construction industry to transition participants successfully into the workforce. Best of all, when our clients are released from Riverside House, they can become a part of the academy where they will apply their classroom knowledge in valuable on-the-job experience.
The purpose of the Community Relations Board meeting is to serve as a two-way communication link between Riverside House Residential Reentry Center and community leadership. The meeting is held in order to advance public education, understanding and advocacy for issues concerning our community such as reentry, recidivism, and more.
Volunteers helping around the organization. Our volunteer opportunities help us promote education and prevention of incarceration among youth. Through volunteering, individuals will gain an understanding of the purpose of Riverside House and learn the challenges offenders embark on in their road from incarceration to recovery.
Our volunteers work to help maintain Riverside House's facility. We aim to provide our clients with a warm environment so it feels more like a home and less like a halfway house.
Comprehensive Residential Reentry Program
Riverside House's Comprehensive Residential Program assists men and women in making a successful transition from prison to the community. To accomplish this, we offer personalized programs that emphasize life issues such as employment, life skills, substance abuse counseling, and family reunification.
During their enrollment in the Comprehensive Residential Reentry Program, residents live at Riverside House. In addition, they must participate in support services that may include educational opportunities, individual and group counseling, job search and placement, and substance abuse counseling.
Unique to our organization, and at the core of all programs, is the non-denominational message of God's forgiveness. Our compassionate team and volunteers also focus on teaching accountability and restoring the broken bonds between the client and their family.
We believe that all offenders should have guidance available to them. Riverside House's goal is to guide individuals towards the path to a new life. Our Non-residential Support program serves to assist graduates from our Comprehensive Residential Reentry Program as well as all offenders struggling with life after incarceration. The program includes a variety of services to help offenders navigate the journey of their second chance at leading positive and productive lives. Services include spiritual guidance, support groups, individual counseling, employment training, life skills training, and referrals to community agencies that offer additional support. Riverside House will guide individuals towards the path to a new life.
Riverside House's mission and vision can be enhanced through the efforts of our community. Our Community Partnership program strives to bring together a variety of organizations for the purpose of providing support and educational programs within institutions and beyond. We partner with three main types of organizations. They are Faith-Based Organizations, Community Agencies and Correctional Institution Relations.
Our Spiritual Development program is at the very heart of Riverside House. Through this non-denominational, faith-based program, we offer individuals who are imprisoned in mind or spirit a place of refuge while providing spiritual and social guidance. We aim to help offenders find the strength to change their lives and the encouragement to evolve for the better.
