More than 90% of the individuals incarcerated in Nebraska prisons will return to the community at some point.

With an average sentence length of three years, it is imperative reentry begins at intake and opportunities for change are available throughout a person’s incarceration.

A program-rich environment provides the space for individuals to make the necessary changes for successful reentry. #Programs #StrategicPlanningRead more
