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