A faith-based prevention and early intervention mental health program for incarcerated individuals

About Project In-Reach Ministry

The Neighborhood House Association (NHA) Project In-Reach Ministry program is an outreach and engagement program designed to help incarcerated individuals with serious mental illness and co-occurring disorders prepare for re-entry in the community. The Project In-Reach Ministry program collaborates very closely with faith-based partners to offer clinical and faith-based services to all participants. Program goals include educating clients about mental health and substance use, exploring coping mechanisms, decreasing instances of relapse, diminishing the impact of untreated health, mental health and/or substance use issues, and reducing recidivism.
