New Jersey Reentry Corporation (NJRC)

The NJRC works with returning citizens, employers, and community partners to remove barriers to employment so that everyone in our community can be safer, healthier, and better employed.

The NJRC Values:

  • We Believe in Second Chances
  • Set the Stage For Employment: Clients are Sent to Jobs When They’re Ready
  • Clean Body, Clean Mind, Clean Job: Clients Need Sobriety, Health, Stability and Good Jobs
  • Seeing the Whole Client: Clients Need More than Just Job Options, They Need Help Putting all the Pieces Together for a New Life
  • Data Is Our Friend: We Capture Everything So We Know What Works and What Doesn’t
  • Clients Are Individuals: We Focus on What’s Right for Each Particular Client
  • Time Is Everyone’s Greatest Resource: We Work Efficiently to Get Our Clients Back to Work Quickly
  • Safety is Paramount: We Never Put Our Clients or Employees at Risk

The NJRC strives to develop a culture where people with histories of incarceration face no barriers to employment and are no more likely to be arrested than people who have not been incarcerated. NJRC also connects the formerly incarcerated to necessary services in order to ensure the lowest possible chance of recidivism. NJRC's Bergen County team consists of employment specialists, intake coordinators, case managers, social workers, and legal service coordinators. 

Eligibility Clients are eligible if they have been formerly incarcerated, are currently incarcerated (program starts after release), or have had any involvement in the criminal justice system as a defendant. Transportation by van is provided for certain clients, however, clients are given bus tickets to use for certain employment purposes, or site appointments.
