About

The Anti-Recidivism Coalition's (ARC) mission is to reduce incarceration, improve the outcomes of formerly incarcerated individuals, and to build healthier communities.

ARC seeks to accomplish this mission by employing a three-fold approach: 

  • To advocate for fair and just policies that reduce crime, decrease the use of incarceration, and serve the needs and well-being of formerly incarcerated people
  • To provide services and resources to rebuild broken men and women whoa are affected by the criminal justice system and improve outcomes
  • To build healthier communities by returning motivated, mentally prepared, men and women of high character from incarceration to crime-ridden neighborhoods to serve as ambassadors for change

In brief, ARC is a support network, a connection to services and support, and an advocate for just and fair policies.
