Collaborative Association for Reintegration & Education (CARE)

Our mission is to support community transformation by working to address all forms of discrimination against those who have been incarcerated or detained.

Collaborative relationships with our justice-impacted neighbors foster growth and support successful reintegration. Through educating our community on why this mission is important, we facilitate transformative relationships which, in turn, increase opportunities for the neighbors we serve.

   Our Programs   

Youth & Families

We provide peer counseling, recreational activities, systems navigation, and mutual aid to justice- and system- impacted youth in schools and on the streets. Our youth programming also connects youth peers to recovery programs, housing, counseling, and other supports that align with their specified goals.

Community Education

CARE works collaboratively with Washington’s key stakeholders to identify methods of re-allocating funds and other resources from carceral systems to services benefitting our most marginalized residents.
