Incident Intervention

Navigating pre-arrest situations can be complex when 911 has been called. We work with individuals and families to help mitigate the impacts of a 911 crisis. We help people know their rights and stay informed about the process. Troubleshoot support for childcare, bills, vehicle impoundment, and more. We can help prepare you for negotiating with prosecutors, and avoid using words that trigger a cascade of unintended responses.

Post Arrest

We help families, individuals and court professionals talk and work together once someone has been put in jail. We can help guide you through the initial court processes post-arrest, including paying prosecutors fees, providing knowledge about warrants for search and arrest, and help you avoid involuntary waiving of Miranda rights.

Court Processes

We assist in navigating court processes, such as knowing what the roles and limitations of public defenders, prosecutors and attorneys are. Help with processing paperwork, negotiating plea agreements, and dealing with presumptions of guilt.

Family Issues


Our workshops and support help to simplify the issues for families, employers and others affected by an incident.

We realize that the issue of incarceration is a whole interlocking community and family matter.

Family impacts are complex. Therefore we have diagrammed different issues, developing and testing programs that solve different situations. We are releasing them as we produce the training materials.

Case Interception

When you apply for our services, we work with you to see the hidden impacts on your family, to see if there are unintended consequences caused by duplications, excessive punishment and confusion between courts. There are ways that the sequence of court processes might be intercepted, simplifying the situation.

As appropriate, it may be useful to accompany you to court hearings and to safely engage the court professionals in communicating what is happening.

Re-Entry

We have mentors and people with lived experience available to help you and your family navigate the process of reorienting to life outside of jail or prison. With the reality of a record, the world has changed.

We have the ReEntry University Training Program to assist our ReEntry mentors as they help you understand and adapt to the aftershocks of an arrest and incarceration. Our tools, classes and programs are designed to create a checklist and platform for success. This directly reduces your chance of recidivism.

Restorative Actions

Restorative Justice principles can be used in many situations. The fundamental process is to find out if the victim and perpetrator are willing to resolve and reconcile harms and misunderstanding. We can arrange to meet in safe and controlled conditions to discuss what happened and the unintended consequences that are still affecting people. The goal is to reduce harm and mitigate impacts for all parties involved.

It can be done with legal supervision and mutual representation to reduce and resolve losses including material, physical, mental, emotional and relational affects.
