Imagine. . .
Today is the day that you are released from incarceration. You have served your time and you are ready for freedom. The bus drops you off at Anchorage Jail. All that you have are the clothes that you were arrested in. You hardly recognize the surrounding city. You long to return to your community, to find a job, to secure housing, and to mend relationships. Where do you begin?
Partners Reentry Center was founded in 2009 in an effort to meet the needs of those returning from incarceration. We collaborate with the Alaska Department of Corrections and other community-based organizations to offer a participant-based program that combines housing and employment assistance with ongoing case coordination, peer support meetings, cognitive behavioral treatment, and an Alaskan Native Reentry group.
Reentry participants receive assistance and are held accountable for their progress towards becoming productive citizens.

We are able to provide closely coordinated assistance and support thanks to a legislatively designated grant managed by the Department of Health and Human Services. A Homeless Assistance Program grant from Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) is also used in collaboration with the Alaska Department of Corrections and other agencies to provide housing. This way, those lacking resources on the day that they are released from prison are able to walk into safe and sober housing.
