The Alaska Community Reentry Program
The Alaska Community Reentry (ACR) Program is a State of Alaska effort to reduce recidivism. JREC adopted the ACR as a guiding document to help the coalition reach its mission.
The ACR Program envisions that inmates sentenced to thirty days or more will have the services and supports needed to successfully reenter their communities. Community services and supports include, but are not limited to:
- access to healthcare (physical health, mental health, and substance use treatment),
- education and training, and
An incarcerated individual could be introduced to community services during incarceration. Community connections while inside helps gain familiarity and establishes relationships needed for successful reentry. One way to get connected is to talk to the Reentry Probation Officer at the facility.
Another great community resource is partnering with the JREC Reentry Case Manager if you release to Juneau. The reentry case manager will work with you to complete a reentry plan before release. And, continue working with you for the next six months while the steps of your reentry plan are successfully completed. The reentry case managed process is fully described in the ACR document. To connect with the Juneau Reentry Case Manager, check out their flyer.
