The mission of the Alliance for CHANGE is to facilitate the healthy and safe reintegration of incarcerated men and women back into society. We recognize that this requires an active process of re-socialization, including pre-parole and post-parole community support. Our program incorporates core principles of social justice and community living as well as practical skills that ensure successful reintegration and lifestyle change that is beneficial to the participant as well as his or her larger community.
- Develop participants’ cognitive and critical thinking skills, including effective problem solving.
- Encourage civic engagement and social justice as core values within our participants and their communities.
- Create a Transitional Community where the formerly incarcerated can live their newly developed skills and values.
- Increase public safety by ensuring that incarcerated individuals become responsible, reflective, and skilled before integrating back into society.
