New Name Ministries (NNM) believes there is a significant benefit to the defendant and the Court in establishing insight and understanding of a defendants' disposition and potentials before sentencing. Our one year program can greatly assist in determining the viability of a defendant remaining safely in a community upon sentencing and staying that way.
NNM focuses on transformation. Unlike other programs, we believe one's Christian faith partnered with professionally administered group Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment yields the best results for offence free living.
Those wanting to participate in our program must be willing to lay down their former life and embrace the one God created them for. NNM has the tools to help those willing to be accountable and real if they are truly ready for transformation; the very purpose of our Pre-Trial Program.
The Courts are typically limited in their sentencing options yet recognize that certain individuals are unlikely to benefit from incarceration. New Name Ministries provides a significant resource for consideration; community safe residential programming with group Cognitive Behavioral Treatent.
We all know that the Courts need to honor victims and protect society by doling out consequences fitting to the crime. Occaisionally, a suspended sentence is in order - though scarce are the options for those who've committed a sexual offense. This is the population of offenders that New Name Ministries specializes in.
As part of our Post Conviction Program we perform scheduled Compas Assessments and criminal thinking assessments to monitor progress, reveal areas of concern, and give evidence to reductions in risk. New Name Ministries seeks to create safer communities while helping reduce prison population by providing a community safe alternative to prison for those who are willing to change.
