Our mission is to stop the cycle of re-incarceration by providing training and support to the people of New Mexico who are recovering from substance use disorders and mental health issues.
The New Mexico Reentry Center is more than a referral program. We take a modern approach to life after incarceration—and a realistic, empathetic one. We understand the stigma that comes after being incarcerated and how it can have a negative impact on quality of life, job opportunities, housing, and more.
Our staff has experience navigating common roadblocks encountered upon reentry into the community, and we are committed to helping men and women overcome them. From finding employment and gaining access to an ID, to counseling resources, clothing/hygiene and transportation - we support our people while they work to rebuild their life.
Our client-centered approach means that we treat every person who comes through our door as a unique individual, and we walk alongside each client, sharing our own personal experiences. At NM RC we are creating a community where men and women leaving incarceration are provided the skills and knowledge they’ll need to maintain their sobriety and mental health with opportunity and purpose. We are people who have struggled and picked ourselves up to overcome everything from substance use disorders to mental health issues.
We know first-hand what it is like to try and enter society after incarceration. NM RC is not just another service provider, but a family provider where we empower, uplift, and encourage our brothers and sisters just like a family should. We’ve been there, and we’re ready to help our clients redirect the hustle to focus on themselves in a positive way.
