We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community... Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.

Prison Aftercare

VA Cares/Community Action: (540)382-9382 - The mission of Virginia CARES (Virginia Community Action Re-Entry System) is to assist newly released ex-offenders and their families in making a successful transition from prison to their community. It is a charitable mission to help with emergency needs first and to then assist with the client becoming self-sufficient by obtaining employment. The social services Virginia CARES provides are food, clothing, transportation, and shelter, guidance for job interviews and leads, and referrals to other agencies that would further benefit the client’s stability in the community.

Bridge Program (Jail and Jail Diversion Services)New River Valley Community Services: (540)443-7512 - Bridge is a jail diversion program that provides treatment for individuals who are involved in the criminal justice system and have mental health disorders or co-occurring mental health and substance use disorder. The program offers two groups that address these issues: Seeking Safety is an evidence-based practice that was specifically developed for individuals with a trauma history – and who may have Post-traumatic Stress Disorder — as well as substance use disorders; and Beyond the Bars is a group designed to teach coping skills for mental health problems and substance use disorders, and to address criminal conduct. Participants are challenged to engage in more pro-social behaviors.

The New River Reentry Council is part of the Virginia Community Reentry Approach (VCRA).

A Commonwealth in which people previously incarcerated access quality services to assist them in becoming productive citizens thus promoting safer communities and stable families.
The Virginia Community Reentry Approach strengthens public safety through a community based approach to reentry that provides opportunities for people previously incarcerated, that supports families and that reduces recidivism.
  • All people have worth and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect
  • Community collaboration strengthens effectiveness
  • Integrated service delivery is cost effective
  • Stable families support children’s healthy development and future success
  • Safe communities are the best environment in which to live and work
  • Increase public safety through reduced recidivism
  • Maximize opportunities for people returning to the community after incarceration
  • Support family and community integration for people returning from incarceration
