Successful reentry programs are an instrumental part of helping individuals with a troubled past become successful and productive members of society again. Regardless of an individual’s past, there is no reason any single person should be dismissed if he has done his due diligence in serving time for punishment. Our belief at The Rock Found is that nobody should be forgotten or left behind.

Following release, the first step advised to individuals coming out of incarceration is to seek out successful reentry programs. The Rock Found is one of the few successful reentry programs found in the Colorado area. We are a faith-based nonprofit 501(c)3 that partners with other successful reentry programs in order to bring important help to people. All of our services focus on benefitting these individuals in their everyday life and to help them grow spiritually.

We understand it takes more than instruction to be known as one of the successful reentry programs. That is why The Rock Found provides a myriad of therapeutic services for the betterment of our clients’ lives. Our...


The need for reentry housing programs is as great now as ever. According to the US Bureau of Justice Statistics, there were as many as 2.3 million people incarcerated in 2016, and the trend seems to only be increasing with each year. The Rock Found believes this is unacceptable. Once people pay their penance there should be nothing but support and encouragement to move forward and avoid any activities that result in trouble. But it takes a community to help inspire growth. And it takes faith to truly enact change. These are ideas we firmly stand behind at The Rock Found, and we will continue to act in a supportive role for anyone that comes to us looking for help. To find out more about who we are and what sets us apart from other reentry housing programs visit our website at the link provided here: The Rock Found.

As we close out the 2023 year I'm inviting you to join me for my last POM Training.

The Need For More Parent Mentors Remains Urgent!

We are at an historic time in our nation for a variety of issues: Rising prices, open border and mass immigration, looting, crime and violence in broad daylight, not to mention war in the Ukraine and Israel, etc. All important issues. Nevertheless, I still contend that the health and strength of families continues to be of the utmost importance as it relates to long-term solutions to the ills of modern society.

Most recently I have been focused on the...

The Rock Found is a 501(c)(3) that provides assistance for offenders transitioning back into society. They work one-on-one with their clients, and assist them with everything from housing and food, to developing a resumé and preparing for job interviews.

The Rock Found offers self-developmental programs throughout the week for these men and women: programs which assist them in getting to know themselves, and better understanding how it is they interact with others—also, how to be better men and women, objectively. How to be more virtuous, and develop a worldview & self-image that both supports and thrives upon that progress in virtue.

Working with transitioning offenders can be daunting, but that's mostly just because of the hype. Besides, it's in everyone's best interest: the only alternative to helping these men and women successfully reintegrate into the community, is to keep them locked away forever—and nobody wins in that scenario. To that extent, the Rock Found is always looking to broaden their support network by partnering with individuals and...

Our society has an unfortunate tendency of not forgetting people’s past. Too many people judge a book by it’s cover, many times not allowing people who made a mistake the ability to move on and fix their lives. The Rock Found offers this opportunity. We believe that everyone should have an equal opportunity to become better. That’s why we offer help for individuals with addictions.

The Rock Found participates in local outreaches will other partners to offer assistance through programs and resources.

Prison is something that will change a person forever. In prison, you live a different life, a different culture. The laws are eat or be eaten, gain respect or be disrespected. In the outside world, culture is very different.

This transition can be extremely difficult and for some mentally scarring. Many released prisoners have had to seek psychological attention in order to be able to get past the mental struggles that sometimes come with spending time in prison.

The vast majority of people who go to prison and are released end up back in prison. This is not...

The Rock Found 1542 7th Ave. Greeley, CO 80631

Dear Rock Found,

I hope this reeches you well and in high spirits. I am currently incarcerated at Sterling Correctional Facility, on my 11th calendar, and have felt like this year has been the first year I truly felt incarcerated. I know right? It's only the third month. The reason I am writing is not to complain about my situation, but to thank you for the work you do and to hopefully convey my gratitude for one of your re-entry navigators, Amanda Lucas.

Okay, a brief background on where I came from over these eleven years. There is no way around the fact that I committed my crime and it was while high. I have been sober since July 6, 2012. I committed a very heinous crime, also had a lot of violence in my history. While incarcerated I vowed sobriety and non-violence. I worked with every walk of life to better their circumstance and create space for incarcerated people to learn and value themselves. Most recently, I - with a team - created and ran the DOC inmate newspaper The Inside Report,...

Recidivism programs are committed to providing help for prisoners after release in various forms of community reentry services. Compassion and forgiveness are at the heart of most recidivism programs, including faith-based organizations who offer the support these individuals need after being released from incarceration.

Whether that need is transitional housing for ex-prisoners, finding work for felons, or offering therapeutic guidance for ex-offenders, community reentry programs are doing their part to help lower the recidivism rate both in their states and nationwide.

Prison reentry programs are an essential component in the rehabilitation of many recently released inmates. The Rock Found aim is to help the rate in which recidivism occurs within the United States.

Our team at The Rock Found has worked diligently in order to help create and offer individuals the tools necessary to help them successfully fall back into the normalities of everyday life. The truth of the matter is that approximately seventy percent of individuals who faced incarceration will find themselves behind bars again within five years of their release date.

Most criminal activity is recorded to be done under circumstances of desperation rather than desire. Many of the individuals who choose to commit crimes such as theft do so because of lack of food or money to pay for their basic necessities.

Once these individuals have been arrested it can become increasingly difficult for them to land a stable job or plan of action without falling back into negative habits. Some of the resources that we offer through our prison reentry programs at The Rock Found...

Whether the inmate is released on parole or once again free from the legal system, seeking out work is one of the first goals upon release.

At that very instance when any ex-offender gets off the bus in your surrounding area and community, a daunting task is directly staring them down – where can I find the safest place to stay that night. The Rock Found offers Ex Offender Housing Programs that are compassionate and actually work.

When it comes to a majority of ex offenders, many of them won’t have a family awaiting their arrival. In most instances, families and close friends might have passed away, relocated, or plain and simple made it absolutely clear the ex-offender is not going to be welcome. Also can be legal reasons associated with why the ex-offend cannot go home. Ex Offender Housing Programs are available no matter your race, creed or affiliations.

The end result that we see at The Rock Found is that ex offenders will often times end up in homeless shelters or camps. These types of situations are far better than sleeping on the streets or outdoors, the only caveat is that the beds and sleeping arrangements are generally available at nighttime only. When the daytime comes around the shelter...


Why is there a need for a community reentry program like The Rock Found? Did you know that over 70% of prisoners that are released end up being re-incarcerated within 5 years? Why does this happen?

Well, to really understand what’s going on you have to look at the reason that someone commits a crime. Most crimes aren’t committed of want, but out of need. The lack of food, the necessity for money and other basic necessities.

Another strong influence is poor friendships, that can lead someone down a path, that takes them to commit a crime. So how can you expect to incarcerate someone and then release them back into the same environment and not expect them to go back to the same life that they had?

That’s where we come in with a community reentry program. Continue reading to learn more about community reentry and The Rock Found.
