About Us

Our Premise

We find three (3) very important points that cannot be ignored when devising strategies to resolve youth crime & recidivism. They are (1) Lack of habilitation; (2) Institutional & social criminal reinforcement; and (3) Lack of community identity.

Our Mission

To provide social adjustment/habilitation assistance & reentry services to young adult offenders ages 14 through 21 who have been involved in the juvenile justice system from the age of 14 or above and have never been convicted as an adult under Federal or State law; & to further promote initiatives designed to advance the re-entry policies & initiatives affecting other ex-offenders in the South Dallas area.

Our Goal

The goal of New Expectations is to administer programs and initiatives that provide ex-offender youth with the strategies and resources needed for successful transition from a life of criminal dependence to one of being socially habilitated and prepared to live independent of crime.

Ex-offender Community Outreach

This effort represents a comprehensive approach towards programmatic participation by adjudicated youth in the community. The program will employ at-risk participants/adjudicated juveniles for neighbourhood revitalization projects that involve making improvements within distressed communities. This program will not only provide for most young men and women first-time paying jobs, but also their first time to working actively within their community.
