About Native American Reentry Services
WHO WE ARE
Native American Reentry Services is a nonprofit dedicated to helping Native American, Asian Pacific Islander and other Aboriginal people overcome the challenge of incarceration and reentering the community post-incarceration. Our board consists of professionals who’ve served the incarcerated Native population during incarceration.
WHAT WE DO
Native American Reentry Services's reentry program, HEAL for Reentry, first created reentry drum of formerly incarcerated to be a presence at DOC annual pow wows, which was highly successful. Currently we are offering up our expertise to tribes to support tribal reentry programs and connection to tribal members during incarceration. Our long term goal is to begin providing direct services to Pierce County urban Indian population.
Native American Reentry Services was awarded the American Indian Alaska Native Religious Services Contract by the Washington State Dept. of Corrections in 2016. We are proud to serve the Native community by insuring traditional ceremony and services to our incarcerated brothers and sisters.
HOW WE DO IT
We are currently seeking funding to support the work we do. Our board members and support staff work on a voluntary basis to support our community at this time.
WHAT SETS US APART
We do not compete with other organizations for clients; our goal is to help other reentry programs grow. Our incarcerated brothers and sisters cannot overcome the challenge of recidivism unless we all work together to address their many needs.
