The Alliance for CHANGE is a unique and individualized program, utilizing continuity of care and other best practices to enhance public safety and social justice. We partner with currently and formerly incarcerated people and provide compassionate assistance when they and their peers return to the community upon their release from prison.
More than 48 students per year graduate from the Alliance Social Justice Education Program and another 40 graduate from Anger Management. Over 150 men have completed our social justice course, and we have supported dozens of men in the days and months after their release. We continue to grow and work with more partners and we look forward to expanding our reach and our effect on the men’s lives.
