Creating a World With Second Chances
Changing the narrative through advocacy, redemption, and reimagination.
RCSG provides wrap-around services to ensure that returning citizens have the support they need to successfully transition back into their communities. This includes safe housing, food, toiletries, including family reunification.
RCSG is working to launch Essex County's First re-entry housing model that's by and for returning citizens that complements our wrap-around services. These housing opportunities address the urgent need for safe, affordable, and sustainable housing for returning citizens.
CREATING REAL TRANSFORMATION
RCSG leads alternatives to the current criminal legal system and re-entry services in partnership with Inside Circle to provide the highest level of trauma informed care and own the narrative for our communities.
Returning Citizens Support Group (RCSG) was founded by returning citizens to provide the re-entry supports and wrap-around services for systems impacted communities to have a real second chance. Since 2017, they've served more than 2,000 people effectively to not just reduce recidivism, but to ensure our communities can thrive. Now they boast business owners, college graduates, and most importantly, community leaders.
RCSG has effectively proved that a model of wrap-around services personalized to each individual is not only possible, but provides the best outcomes. RCSG's programming covers housing, employment, clothing, food, emotional and mental health, family reunification, and service navigation.
