Founded in 1972, Riverside House is a non-profit, faith-based organization committed to guiding people offenders into becoming productive citizens. Our dedicated, caring, and compassionate team members provide counseling, life skills training, and vocational and spiritual development care services to individuals who have chosen crime and fallen prey to it. We assist individuals in breaking free from the cycles of self-abuse, and return them to their families and society to live positive, productive lives.
Riverside House exists to guide men and women convicted of crime into becoming productive citizens through a nondenominational, faith-based approach.
Our vision is that all individuals will lead positive and productive lives when given the opportunity to succeed. Regardless of gender or culture, Riverside House seeks to change the lives of at-risk individuals through community and residential programs that emphasize personal accountability, family relationships, and spiritual growth.
To accomplish its vision and mission, Riverside House employs the following six values:
We value the importance of taking responsibility for one’s actions.
We believe in building the community we live and work in through setting an example of servant leadership and partnerships.
We embrace and support the rich diversity that exists within our community and client population.
We believe that faith in God can transform lives.
We believe that family relationships, when nurtured properly, serve as the foundation of individuals and society.
We believe in contributing to the world around us through taking positive and productive action each and every day.
