New Beginnings

Did you know that 90% of people leave prison and return to their respective communities?

Mission 

To reduce recidivism rates by educating, empowering, and encouraging inmates to no longer fall victim to their circumstance(s). 

About the Program

 

To support the initiative to reduce recidivism, Nabors Coaching Group offers an in-person re-entry program called “New Beginnings.”  We believe that re-entry begins before release; hence we work from the inside out.  We help inmates “look” at themselves in the face of their current conditions; we assist with personal reflections regarding what brought them or keep bringing them to prison and what they want for their future.  Ultimately, we aim to help the inmates understand their purpose, vision, and, most importantly, their plan upon release.   

We have a uniqueness to our program offerings.  We provide a two-week intensive program, a life skills-driven curriculum that emphasizes the importance of personal-social development. If you don’t know who you are, you don’t know where you are going. Additionally, we aim to collaborate with community partners that offer inmates a face, name, and organization of support upon their immediate release.  Research shows that one of the major contributing factors to reoffending or probation violations is the lack of knowledge in community resources. 

60-90 Day Release

New Beginnings focuses on serving inmates who are soon to be released back into their respective communities. 

Challenges with Release

In addition to former inmates’ struggle with a criminal background, other factors impede their ability to transition from prison successfully. Some of these challenges are:

  • Obtaining proper documentation (i.e., State Identification, Birth Certificates, Social Security Cards, etc.)

  • Securing safe housing

  • Landing self-sufficient employment

  • Reestablishing public benefits

  • Adequate clothing and personal hygiene products
     

Along with these tangible items are the intangibles which consist of:

  • The emotional impact of imprisonment

  • Social challenges relating to people, places, and things

  • Reintegration with family, children and significant other

Once a New Beginnings student, always a New Beginnings student.
