Unique Programs


Cage Your Rage program focuses on helping the offenders with anger issues stemming from life circumstances. The offenders are taught coping skills, thinking skills, and how to think before they react.

The Faith Based Reintegration Program concentrates on the offenders, their family members, sponsors, and mentors. The program is facilitated by NERC staff and local religious volunteers. The program provides 3 semesters of programming centered on the spiritual, emotional, family, and social needs for the offender. The program participants will complete 3 programs per semester, attend 2 religious services per week, and develop a 3 year reentry plan. Throughout the year program participants have the opportunity to unite with their family in family worship gatherings, fine arts celebrations, and academic graduations.
