The New Jersey Reentry Corporation (NJRC) is a non-profit agency with a social mission to remove all barriers to employment for citizens returning from jail or prison.

The NJRC is premised on the ambition to create an environment which promotes pro-social norms, encouraging the establishment of attachments to positive rehabilitative cultures, strengthening bonds among peers who promote positive norms and values, and promoting family reunification. Participants receive individualized assessments and treatment plans that first address essential needs, including housing, treatment, mental health care, medical care, and access to health insurance and other public benefits to secure these essential needs.

Tom Reigle
Tom Reigle was a classic candidate for recidivism. After thirty years in prison he had virtually no resources or connections that could help him successfully reenter modern society. It’s hard to imagine how much the world has changed in thirty years, and what its like to be gone for all of it. Luckily with the help of JCETP Tom has acquired a job and has been put in touch with housing providers and will be living on his own.
