Partners for Progress is a state-wide community-based nonprofit in Alaska with the mission of:

  • Promoting public safety by reducing reoccurrence of addiction-fueled crime
  • Supporting problem-solving courts that focus on providing positive outcomes for the offender, victim, and society
  • Providing assistance to indigent former offenders as they re-enter their communities
  • Partnering with problem-solving courts by providing training scholarships for court teams, sponsoring public education forums, and keeping abreast of innovative approaches to reducing recidivism

"Before, when I was in trouble, it was the State of Alaska against me.  In this court program, the judge, the case coordinator, the treatment provider, the prosecutor, the defender and myself – are all working together against my addiction."
