Community Works seeks to catalyze our collective power to transform justice through programs and policy rooted in humanity and healing.
We honor as expertise the lived experience of survivors, incarcerated people, and their communities. Our continuum of services is designed to meet the needs of people at any stage of justice system involvement. Our programs are culturally responsive, trauma-informed, and rooted in Restorative Justice and the Arts.
We cut the number of people coming into contact with justice systems and improve outcomes for those who do. We ensure that the people living within and in spite of these systems are the ones who will ultimately change them. Our direct service work heals trauma, builds individual capacity, and reduces barriers to family connection. Our advocacy work elevates the voices of our clients to advance policies and practices that promote diversion and successful reentry.
