Welcome to www.ncreap.com virtual home to The North Carolina Re-Entry Action Project.
NC R.E.A.P. is established to advocate for the successful re-entry of ex-offenders into their communities by empowering individuals, agencies, and organizations with information, research and the promotion of evidence-based public policy.
NC R.E.A.P. does not provide direct services but rather serves as a resource bank for ex-offenders. Four committees have been established to address the needs of those seeking a second chance.

For the first time, more than one in every 100 Americans is incarcerated; however, for Blacks and Latinos, that number is significantly higher.

The North Carolina Re-Entry Action Project is here to help you R.E.A.P. that harvest and enjoy the fruit that lies--beyond freedom...
