Helping You Reenter Society Through Effective Programs

NEW WAY MISSISSIPPI, INC. is a nonprofit organization that offers transitional housing programs and other resources for formerly incarcerated citizens. Since 1998, we have been assisting various individuals who want to stay out of prison and lead better lives.

Mission and Vision

Our goal is to empower individuals and families by providing services like restoration and preventive programs so they can successfully reenter society. We also offer resources for victims of negative social and economic issues while improving the community—one family at a time.

What We Do

Our team believes that most crimes committed in society are often caused by alcohol and drug abuse. For this reason, our organization tries to provide a means of recovery for formerly incarcerated individuals and those suffering from addiction.

Who We Are

We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization recognized by the state laws of Mississippi and the IRS. Although our team focuses on minority families and youth, we also reach out to other individuals regardless of race, sex, religion, age, and nationality.

About Our President

Larry D. Perry has been working with different urban communities in Jackson, Mississippi for more than 17 years. He has participated in various outreach ministries that focus on drug rehabilitation and rescue mission programs.

Our Story

While working with different individuals and families, Larry was able to confirm his suspicion that there isn’t a comprehensive and effective plan to address issues on alcohol and drug abuse. Fortunately, New Way Mississippi, Inc. has teamed up with various agencies to empower and support individuals who want to break free from their addiction and avoid any form of dependency.
