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!
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!
The RISE Nebraska in-prison team has been working diligently to continue programming in correctional facilities, in spite of the COVID-19 health pandemic. Get your in-prison program updates here!
In February, the RISE Reentry team partnered with the Nebraska Department of Labor to host a reentry simulation created by the United States Department of Justice. Designed for participants to gain an understanding of obstacles faced by people coming out of incarceration, we collectively hosted over 35 service provider participants in the state of Nebraska.
