Lincoln Organization Helps Ex-Inmates Get Back on Their Feet

One organization here in Lincoln is helping ex-inmates get their lives back on track beyond the prison gates. It's called the “House for New Life.” A house that not only offers ex-inmates a place to stay, but a chance at a better life. More than 600 people have walked through the doors at the “House for a New Life.” A house that's much more than just a free place to stay. It provides a safe environment free from drugs, alcohol, and violence. They offer AA classes, and people get help to get employment.

Right now 13 people are staying at the House for a New Life. The program is funded by private donations. Staff members are looking for volunteers to mentor residents. Also, if you would like to make a donation call the House for New Life. That number is 466-6080.
