Residential Reentry

We Are Here To Help

Riverside House’s Residential Reentry 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 enrollment in the 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.
