What We Do...


The CMNRP was founded in 2006 with the goal of bridging the gap between incarceration and successful re-entry into public life. The early focus was on building relationships with Formerly Incarcerated Persons and creating clear pathways to resources that could increase their chances of success. In 2011, CMNRP purchased its first home to provide direct housing services to Formerly Incarcerated Persons and has since grown to 4 properties in St. Cloud, MN.

Today, we are able to provide housing in a supportive, safe, and accountable environment for 18 Formerly Incarcerated Persons at any given time with plans for growth in the future.

How We do it...

Our Process & House Rules

CMNRP’s primary focus is centered on the person(s) and maximizing their potential to take ownership of their re-entry process. The program is grounded in relationship with the individual, which is built within the context of our transitional housing. 

House rules focus on responsibility, accountability, and interpersonal relational dynamics. We maintain close relationships with supervising officers, which allows us to support our client’s efforts to lay and build upon a stable foundation for long term success.

CuRRent Goal...

Setting Them up for success

CMNRP is on the cusp of being able to provide “soft skills” programming such as cognitive development, anger management, domestic violence and parenting classes to our clients and to others in need of these services in the tri-county area. These services will be provided to our clients at no additional cost, and will be made available individuals who are not in our housing program at an affordable rate.
