The phrase "Anchoring of the Soul" refers to the ability to keep our souls in the right place, no matter what happens, no matter what comes our way. This attitude is embodied by the men of BOSS' New Hope Reentry Campus - which offers interim housing and onsite services for individuals returning from incarceration to reintegrate them into the community, helping them transition into stable housing, reunite them with their families, and attain pro-social relationships.
Personalized Case Management: Tailored Services for Unique Needs
One of the most important aspects of the program is the personalized case management that each individual receives. This includes life skills classes, peer support groups, and other services tailored to each person's unique needs. These services are designed to help individuals navigate the challenges of reentry and develop the skills and resources they need to be successful in their new lives.
For the men of New Hope, having a stable and supportive living environment is critical to their success - a safe and secure space where they can focus on their goals and work towards a brighter future. New Hope offers a sense of community and connection, something often lacking for individuals who have been incarcerated.
Stable and Supportive Living Environment: Critical to Success
Reentry housing plays a crucial role in providing a second chance for individuals impacted by the criminal justice system. It bridges incarceration and reintegration into society, offering a stable and supportive living environment. But perhaps the most important aspect of the program is the hope that it provides - that 'anchor to the soul', no matter what challenges arise.
The men of the New Hope Reentry Campus have faced significant obstacles in their lives, but they refuse to give up. They are determined to build a better future for themselves and their families and know that they can do it with the right support and resources.
Resources + Hope = Transformation
By offering personalized case management, life skills classes, peer support groups, and other services, the New Hope Reentry Campus helps individuals navigate the challenges of reentry and build a brighter future - offering life-changing hope to those who may have lost it along the way.
If our anchor is down, hooked onto hope, we must not give up. We can not allow ourselves to be discouraged.
While helping residents build skills and seek jobs and permanent housing, New Hope also helps people reunify with their families, create positive social relationships, and develop the coping skills to start over and become productive members of their communities. This work can can help break the cycle of incarceration and create a more just and compassionate society.
BOSS programs are successful, innovative, based in evidence-based practices and proven methodologies, and emphasize lived experience: across BOSS, over 70% of staff (90% in reentry programs) have personal experience with the same issues faced by current participants.
