THE RIVERSIDE HOUSE PROMISE
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.
“I was 25 years old and I was facing a combined 35-year sentence. I know people don't think guys like me deserve a second chance, but I accepted Jesus in 1995 and it's now 2001. The power of His forgiving grace is forever.”
“I remember the guys talking about becoming new in Jesus. That same night at Riverside, I went and sat on the toilet and told God I'm flushing the old Norge, please Lord, forgive me and make me new. I'm now serving Him instead of time.”
