"This guide provides real help for people transitioning from prison to the community. I urge every offender and those who work with them to use this tool to help overcome obstacles to successful re-entry - to achieve real success in life."

Tom Clements, Former Executive Director, Colorado Department of Corrections, speaking about CCJRC's 2nd edition of Getting on After Getting Out: A Re-Entry Guide for Colorado


The mission of CCJRC is to eliminate the overuse of the criminal justice system and advance community health and safety.

Background Statement

CCJRC was founded in 1999 when Senator Dorothy Rupert introduced legislation calling for a three-year halt on prison expansion and the creation of a task force on sentencing reform. Although this legislation did not pass, it served as a catalyst for uniting a diverse group of organizations, faith communities, and individuals interested in working on state level criminal justice policy reform. Today CCJRC includes more than 100 organizations and over 9,000 individual members statewide.
