Colorado reentry programs like The Rock Found are helping to make a difference and save lives every day. The ability to get support and encouragement after being released from incarceration has been proven to have a huge impact. But, unfortunately, the incarceration rate is as high as ever. Which only means there is more work to be done. Everyone deserves a legitimate chance to change their life. That is exactly the opportunity we present to members of our program each and every day. Take a look at just one of the reasons our members are proud to be a part of this team. Continue reading to find out what sets us apart from similar Colorado reentry programs.

Colorado Reentry Programs | Restorative Justice
The whole problem with incarceration is the recidivism rate (aka how many people end up being reincarcerated). The ugly reality that we see in Colorado is that over 50% of people released by the Colorado Justice Department end up back behind bars. Why is that? What sort of support, or lack thereof, are these people getting?
To combat this terrible statistic, we decided to do something about the issue. We developed our own curriculum that includes a number of different support services. Members of The Rock Found are provided:
- Introduction to Ministry
- Housing Assistance for Felons & Offenders
- Social Skill Development Opportunities
- Peer Mentorship Programs
- Job Training / Help Finding Work
- Moral Reconation Therapy
- Support Groups & Counseling
Our hope is that anyone that desires to make a positive change in his or her life will be given the chance they deserve. We are a faith-based community entry program, and we use our faith as the foundation for everything that we do. And it shows. Every day is another life changed, another miracle.

There are major issues that face almost anyone looking to start their journey back into becoming a contributing member of their local community. For instance, do you have any idea how difficult it can be to get a decent, or even low-paying job when you have a criminal record? In the digital age, with so much information at our fingertips, it can be difficult for someone with a petty misdemeanor to even be given the chance to interview. Our partner Raised in a Barn and CSK’s Grill are both Greeley CO businesses that provide our members work opportunities.
