New Entry exists to
community reentry and personal integrity support for individuals rebuilding from
losses associated with homelessness, incarceration and addiction.
We envision every life
affected by homelessness, incarceration and addiction spiritually restored and
driven by hope and passionate eternal purpose.
New Entry is a grassroots, board-governed 501(c)(3) non-profit with a
strong history of serving the community since November 2004.
New Entry was incorporated in July 2005 and is 80% minority-governed.
We substantially include target population representation on the board,
staff and within volunteer and peer support operations.
Our corporate and staff offices are located at 500 E. 7th
St. within the
for the Homeless, just blocks from the Central East
Weed and Seed area. Our staff is made up of highly trained, educated and
experienced individuals who have weathered life’s storms and choose to
serve from grateful and passionate hearts.
The idea which has
become ANewEntry was
established in November 2004 from experience working with formerly incarcerated
persons (FIPs) who were released with little or no community reentry support.
This lack of resources and supportive accountability often resulted in
homelessness and corresponding high recidivism rates.
The organization was initially formed to address the dearth of
affordable, supportive, home-style housing for those reentering
and recovering from difficult life decisions and
circumstances that may have led to incarceration, homelessness, and/or substance
now provides or facilitates the provision of the following services for
the homeless, those in recovery, and FIPs:
case management services including development of (1) permanent housing, (2)
living-wage employment, and (3) personal stability.|
access and retention support through training, collaboration and practical
access to affordable, supportive housing, including two
NE managed recovery-supportive homes.|
and group counseling and education classes for moral and spiritual
development, anger management, domestic violence, and addictions.|
and placement of adult mentors and volunteers.|
