To protect the public by 1) supporting therapeutic justice statewide, 2) assisting addicted offenders to make the changes needed to achieve a healthy and law-abiding life, and 3) supporting cost-effective programs that reduce criminal recidivism.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Partners’ Reentry Center receives homeless ex-offenders, often on the first day they are released from prison, and provides assistance with temporary housing, transportation and other requirements to become self-sufficient members of the lawful community. Partners offers a hand up, not a hand out. Assistance is conditioned on participants doing their part by finding and keeping a job. By attending courses at our job lab, peer support groups and case management sessions, many succeed.
Partners’ other program, Therapeutic Court Assistance, was started in 1999 with Judge James Wanamaker and the Municipality of Anchorage. We now support therapeutic courts in hub communities statewide by providing transitional housing, non-addictive anti-opioid medication and other services that are outside the normal sphere of the court system.
Like many other small non-profits, Partners lacks discretionary funds or staff resources to put into fundraising events. The bulk of our funding is allocated to client services. For this reason, assistance from Pick.Click.Give is of vital importance to Partners.

Pick.Click.Give offers a great opportunity to cost conscious businesses. This option allows organizations to reach a far greater number of Alaskans than they could ever do by themselves. It also allows Alaskans to contribute to Alaskan nonprofit organizations, and know how this will benefit our state and its people. We feel that Alaskans want to donate to programs that actually benefit Alaskan. Pick.Click.Give is an invaluable service to our people and their institutions.
