RISE Builder Welcome Home Bags!
Nebraska Reentry Program
June 24, 2019
As a reentry program in Nebraska we want to give our RISE Builders the best "Welcome Home" that we can give them. As we have more and more reentering the community on a weekly basis, assuring their basic needs are met is one of the most critical things we can do!
We are so excited to share that we now have a RISE Giving Page on Amazon! If you're looking for practical ways to give, this is it. All of the items on this list will go right into a new, swaggy RISE backpack and onto the backs of our Builders!
Much of recidivism can be traced to returning citizens reoffending during their first 100 days out because they can’t get a job, they lose confidence and hope, and often return to illegal means to earn money and survive. 89% of people in the U.S. that reoffend don’t have a job at the time they do. A job isn’t a silver bullet, but it can be the difference between reentry stability and re-incarceration.
We're hearing RISE Omaha Builder success stories daily! We couldn't be more proud! Follow along to hear how one Builder took a small task and made a big impact on a future employer!
