 Juneau Reentry Coalition Planning Retreat

Baseball great Yogi Berra said, “if you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.”  Yogi’s comment is a great truism and is particularly applicable to the Juneau Reentry Coalition (JREC). 

JREC is taking the time to pause, think, and plan our future.  After all, we want to get to where we are going – a safer community, and increased non-justice-system involvement success for individuals.  Whew, that last bit was a mouthful.

With the above in mind, JREC invites the community of Juneau to help us plan our future.  We will be meeting on Wednesday, October 16th, from 6:00-7:00 pm at the Northern Light United Church, 400 W 11th Street.  

P.S. we’ll have sandwiches, veggies, fruit, and cookies to help the planning process run smoothly.  And, the meeting will be facilitated by Samantha Dye of Dynamic Consulting.  For more details please see our flyer.  

Overcoming addiction and want to minimizing jail time?

At the JREC Community Meeting on April 17th, the Juneau Therapeutic Courts (JTC) program was the topic of discussion.  Michelle Delkettie, Program Manager, provided an overview of the JTC and the Juneau Coordinated Resources Project (CRP) programs.

What is the Juneau Therapeutic Court?

“The Juneau Therapeutic Court is a court for misdemeanor or felony defendants who are charged with a DUI or refusal or have a history of alcohol-related offenses, and who want to overcome their addiction to alcohol and achieve lifetime sobriety.”

What is the Juneau Coordinated Resources Project?

“The CRP – also known as the Juneau Mental Health Court – is a voluntary “therapeutic” or “problem solving” court located within the Juneau District Court that hears cases involving individuals diagnosed with mental disabilities who are charged with misdemeanor offenses and focuses on their treatment and rehabilitation.”
