Support with re-entry and cultivating success in the community

Many people are released from jail with nothing but the clothes they were wearing when arrested. We work with clients to reach their goals and achieve a successful transition.

Transition Support Center

People released from incarceration are welcomed at our Transition Support Center (TSC) located at 1010 S. Walnut St., Suite H where we provide short-term & long-term assistance. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 10am-4pm.

The Re-Entry Mentorship Program provides more in-depth peer support to folks recently released from incarceration. With the help of one-on-one support from a Re-Entry Mentor, participants do a needs assessment, build action plans, acquire necessary resources, and receive education on staying sober, crisis intervention, and trigger identification.

The Bloomington Expungement Desk is a partnership with Indiana Legal Services and the Maurer School of Law to support recently incarcerated individuals in expunging their records. While the in-person service is temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still able to refer people.

“The program is a blessing to me and other women, we come here broken and with low self esteem, New Leaf New Life gives us hope, provides us with things we need like glasses and reading material. I love the program.”
