A Message from our Founder, Christopher Ervin
Sport teams and military boot camps are able to bring groups of individual’s together, show them purpose and instruct them on how to be successful at achieving it.

The Lazarus Rite, Inc. programs, designed by professionals in the field of human services, parole and probation, mental health, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, was created with this idea in mind. Our mission, based on individual assessment, goals and needs, is to provide quality re-entry programs in the areas of academic course work, mentoring, counseling, financial literacy, vocational/job training, job readiness and long term residual support.

At The Lazarus Rite, Inc. we fully expect to reduce and end the cycle of recidivism for our clients. Some programs assist in finding jobs, but we at The Lazarus Rite Inc. finds leaders and set them up for success.
