It isn’t easy to navigate the roadblocks that come with re-entering the community following incarceration. The New Mexico Women’s
Reentry Center, a peer-run organization, understands these difficulties and is
dedicated to assisting women to
stop the cycle of re-incarceration.
New Mexico Women’s Re-Entry Center (NMWRC) is a peer-run organization committed to helping felony-convicted women re-enter the community from NM correctional facilities. This undercounted and too frequently invisible population isn’t just an underserved group in themselves; they represent the backbone of our families, communities, neighborhoods, and cultures. In helping women transition into recovery, secure housing, steady employment, education, and training - we are changing outcomes for the women themselves and for our families and communities.
Redirecting the Hustle never got easier!
NMWRC has MOUs in place with counseling agencies to provide wraparound services in an effort to address the biopsychosocial challenges that impact the opportunities of women - and particularly women of color. We are also working with local governmental and non-governmental agencies to help women find safe, secure housing, employment, training and rehabilitation.
We are women 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.
NMWRC is not just another service provider, but a sister provider where we empower, uplift, and encourage our sisters just like a family should.
