MISSION STATEMENT

New Entra Casa is a residential program for women, and their children, who are coming out of jails and prisons. We are licensed and certified to deliver substance abuse treatment. We meet the need for a place to live while they learn the tools to succeed at breaking the cycles of poor choices, recidivism, and in many cases, abuse. The house is manned twenty-four hours a day by staff. We provide the women with a myriad of services to treat her presenting problems. Every woman is given an individually designed program to address the issues that led to her incarceration. These services include housing, food, counseling, job preparation, life skills, case management, and advocacy.


"The Fusenot Foundation has continued to be a beacon of hope and support for us throughout the years while we have continued to deliver the services our clients need to break the cycles of poor choices, recidivism, and abuse. These grants have met us at our point of need time after time. The support we receive supersedes monetary support. It encourages the morale of our team that works to address the presenting issues for our ladies. It causes us to feel that we are not alone in our belief that everyone deserves a chance at a new way of life. The Fusenot Foundation stands with us as we teach these ladies the tools that will effect lasting change in their lives and the lives of their children.Thank you, thank you, and thank you to all of our friends at the Fusenot Foundation."
