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. Our programs have had a 95% success rate in our over 40 years of hard work.


Investments in faith and community-based programs like Riverside House will reduce recidivism, increase public safety, and reduce the incarceration rate.
