LINC, Inc. Boarding School Plans Move Forward

LINC Inc. is moving forward with plans to renovate the decommissioned Princess Place fire station to the Hisan J. Polk Transformation Academy, a culturally and demographically-specific boarding school for at-risk African American youth in New Hanover County. A 14-month residential academic program in partnership with Cape Fear Community College will empower participants to earn a GED, gain skills in the trades, achieve trade certificates, and set a path for a future of success, pride, and hope.

We Believed, so We Built It

With proper support, guidance, and social networking, individuals returning from incarceration can contribute great value to the community.

Our efforts to provide supportive services and programs are centered around the Residential Re-Entry Program at the M. E. Roberts Transitional Campus. LINC, Inc. provides transitional housing, job training, educational opportunities, substance abuse treatment, and health and medical services.

A Success Story for JULY 2023

Michael has been enrolled in the PH2 program since February 2023. Since his release in March, he has worked diligently on rebuilding the life he had prior to addiction. He was able to secure housing at a local recovery house and has been an exemplary housemate since. He has attended every house meeting, completed 90 in 90, voluntarily participated in IOP, and is working with a sponsor on his 12 steps now. Michael has also obtained employment at a local restaurant, allowing him to pay his own bills and begin rebuilding his savings. In the 3 months since release, he has already saved enough to buy his own vehicle, which he purchased about two weeks ago. Starting this fall, Michael will also be enrolled in CFCC’s Small Engine Mechanic program. His hope is to take this skill and build a career working as a mechanic.

Structured Enrichment

Serving African American Youth

Our goal is to encourage a change in thinking that in turn influences behavior. Ultimately, through the LITE Manhood Program, LINC, Inc. is working to “break the cycle of crime.”

Thinking + Feeling = Character/Behavior/ Problem
