Mission Statement

WEND REENTRY assists men and women recently released from prison with the skills, resources and tools need to reentry society as productive members.

Description

WEND REENTRY was founded by a corrections nurse of nine years. Many of the men and women returning to jail shared similar stories. In an effort to obtain shelter, food, money many would return to a way of life that has lead them down the wrong road. WEND REENTRY's goal is to help reduce the recidivism rate by providing clients with the resources, skills and tools needed to be successful. WEND REENTRY has plans to offer monthly workshops that focus on client needs such as mental health awareness, access to mental health and medical care, continuing education, and assist gaining employment. These are just a few of the workshops WEND REENTRY looks to provide. In the future WEND REENTRY has plans to be a residential reentry facility.
