Welcome to New Beginnings Reentry Services, Inc. 

Many people know how difficult being incarcerated is for a woman. However, something just as, if not even more, challenging is trying to rebuild your life after you have been officially released from jail or prison. Society at large can be quite unforgiving and living a “normal” life can seem like a hopeless case despite your best efforts.

New Beginnings Reentry Services, Inc. in Boston, MA can give you that second chance you rightfully deserve. We offer temporary and transitional housing, as well as full educational programming services for women who have completed serving their sentence or are on Parole/Probation.


New Beginnings Reentry Services, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is empower women who are returning to become productive members of society as well as become active in community engagement. Women who have been recently released from long periods of incarceration often have suffered severe trauma, chronic homelessness, substance abuse issues as well as lack of stable employment opportunities to advance their lives. This platform of our reentry services will assist women in rebuilding and reconditioning their lives grounded in best practices of incorporating evidence based informed curriculum to help with reducing recidivism.

Acquiring these skills is an essential to the redevelopment of oneself but make no mistake, it is vital to the individual to counter the trauma (mental health) issues with a form of dramatic/expressive arts, which were unmet while serving their sentences.

We aim to provide effective, equitable and respectful quality of care services that are responsive to this diverse culture of the prison population.
