Who We Are

Who We Are

The Juneau Reentry Coalition is a collaboration of individuals, community stakeholders, public and not-for­-profit agencies, faith-based and business partners who are united and committed to reducing recidivism among ex-offenders returning to the community.

The mission of the JREC is to promote public safety by identifying and implementing strategies that increase a former prisoner’s well-being within the community and reduces the likelihood of their return to prison.

We will accomplish this by:

  • Improved communication and collaboration between the Alaska Department of Corrections, other State agencies, and the community.
  • Building community partnerships to strengthen local services.
  • Identifying barriers to successful reentry into the community after incarceration and taking an active role in addressing those concerns.
  • Support transitioning offenders in accessing community support services pre/post-release.
  • Work in conjunction with the Alaska Reentry Task Force to inform and promote reentry efforts within Alaska.
  • Promote community awareness about underlying causes and conditions that lead to incarceration.
