The inmates housed at NE Reintegration Center located at 2675 E 30th St in Cleveland, OH are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

NRC is a minimum-security prison that houses approximately 605 minimum and medium-security female inmates even though the facility was constructed to have a maximum capacity of 350 inmates. All inmates who are housed here are required to sign an agreement to participate in extensive rehabilitation programs ranging from academic courses to mental health treatment. NRC was also rated one of the safest facilities in all of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections. The main purpose of Northeast Reintegration Center is to prepare female inmates for a successful transition from custody back to society. Inmates who do not possess a diploma will be required to take adult basic education classes and earn a GED. Additional vocational courses in horticulture and administrative technologies are available. Offenders may also participate in a faith-based reintegration program that allows inmates to be with their families for worship services and focuses on the emotional, spiritual and familial aspects of the inmate.

Unique Programs

  • Cage Your Rage - Cage Your Rage program focuses on helping inmates with anger issues stemming from life circumstances. The offenders are taught coping skills, thinking skills, and how to think before they react.
  • Faith-Based Reintegration - The Faith-Based Reintegration Program concentrates on the offenders, their family members, sponsors, and mentors. The program is facilitated by NERC staff and local religious volunteers. The program provides 3 semesters of programming centered on the spiritual, emotional, family, and social needs for the offender. The program participants will complete 3 programs per semester, attend 2 religious services per week, and develop a 3-year re-entry plan. Throughout the year program participants have the opportunity to unite with their family in family worship gatherings, fine arts celebrations, and academic graduations.
  • Military Preparation - The Military Program is about structure, discipline, and stability. Leadership and teamwork also play a vital role in the program. The drills and physical training keep the mind and body fit and healthy. By instilling core values, it helps the recruits be respectful of peers and staff. They are taught leadership skills that apply to their daily lives. The offenders learn to develop courage to overcome any obstacles including the obstacle that brought them to prison.
  • Money Smarts - The Money Smarts program is a class about the “basics” involved in money management. Participants will learn how to budget expenses and money; ways to decrease spending/increase income; the importance in saving money, how to choose a credit card, how to responsibly use a credit card and how to obtain a credit to build or repair poor credit.
  • Mosaic - The Mosaic Program is an innovative therapeutic residential trauma treatment program designed to help women make connections between their traumatic and abusive histories, their addiction and incarceration. The program model encompasses empirically validated and gender-responsive approaches to treatment. Mosaic is partially funded by a grant from the Bureau of Justice Assistance in cooperation with Recovery Resources, a full-service community mental health/addiction treatment agency in Cleveland.
  • Responsible Family - The Responsible Family Life Skills program focuses on several different components. The components are as follows: getting to know yourself, communication, sharing and interaction, the impact of crime, community justice, repairing family community, adolescence and pop culture influence, taking responsibility, dynamics of family and culture, and morality.
  • Roots of Success - The Roots of Success program is an empowering environmental literacy and job readiness curriculum for corrections and re-entry programs. This program helps institutions achieve their sustainability goals and prepare offenders for employment opportunities in the green economy upon re-entry into society.
  • Thinking For Change - The Thinking for Change program is an integrated cognitive behavioral change for offenders that includes cognitive restructuring, social skills development, and development of problem-solving skills. It’s a continuum of interventions to address the cognitive, social and emotional needs of the offender population.
  • Victims Awareness - The Victim Awareness Program is designed to allow offenders to participate in and learn the effects of crime on victims. The program includes activities such as thought-provoking homework assignments and an opportunity to speak directly with victims of crime and ask questions of how crime has affected their lives. During this intensive program, we explore facets ranging from various crime aspects, thinking errors, and apology letters to the female cultural barriers, media and community impacts.
  • Moving On - Moving On is an intervention program specifically for women who are involved with the criminal justice system. The overarching goal of this program is to assist women in mobilizing and developing personal and social resources to reduce the risk of future criminal behavior. This program can be offered on an individual or group basis to women who are detained or living in the community. Moving On ascribes to two philosophical and overlapping tenets. First, Moving On is a gender-responsive program that is based on theory and research concerned with women. Second, the program aims not only at reducing criminal behavior but also increasing the health and well-being of women, their families, and the community.
