North Carolina :: We Believe God’s Future Is Greater Than Our Past

The JUMPSTART North Carolina chapter site is currently in development, but we wanted to answer a few frequently asked questions:

Why was JUMPSTART NORTH CAROLINA formed?

JUMPSTART North Carolina was formed to continue and expand on JUMPSTART’S mission to reduce recidivism.  JUMPSTART assists offenders (through an inside program) and ex-offenders (through an outside program) in their successful transition to become productive and contributing members of society.

Yes. In May 2022 we began serving by delivering the 40-week inside program at Davidson Correctional in Lexington, NC.

JUMPSTART has a 96% success rate, and here’s why:

VISION  We imagine a day when the back of recidivism is broken in our state, our nation, and beyond.

MISSION In partnership with donors, churches and community partners, we are discipling the incarcerated and assisting returning citizens with re-entry services.

BELIEF  God’s future is greater than our past.

CORE VALUES   Accountability | Responsibility | Authority

OUR GOAL  100% Success for Those Who Choose to be Successful

KEYS TO SUCCESS   Daily Surrender to Christ | Finding and Keep a Job | Setting and Keeping a Budget | Developing a Solid Support Team | Having Fun God’s Way

Absolutely.  JUMPSTART North Carolina, EIN 88-2531638, located at 5513 Netherby Court, Raleigh, NC 27613, has been formed to continue and expand on JUMPSTART’s mission to reduce recidivism and assist ex-offenders in their successful transition to become productive and contributing members of society.

Thereby, JUMPSTART North Carolina is operating under the same guidelines for which JUMPSTART originally received exemption and has provided written authorization to add its name to the JUMPSTART roster as a subordinate to be included in its group exemption beginning in calendar year 2021.

JUMPSTART North Carolina is not a private foundation as defined as Section 509(a) of the code.

JUMPSTART started in South Carolina in 2008 and operates in 17 of 22 prisons. They provide incredible services such as transitional housing; transportation to work; employment services; case management and more. Read about it at jumpstartvision.org

Naturally, this will take time to develop in North Carolina. A Leadership Council will prayerfully pursue ways to organize and fund an effective outside program.
