David’s Hope is a 501c3 nonprofit organization created in 2009. Reducing incarceration and promoting treatment for those with mental illness and addictions in Arizona and across the nation is our vision. In order to accomplish our work, it is important that both mental health and criminal justice entities collaborate together. A program of David’s Hope which is bringing about this much needed change is the Arizona Mental Health & Criminal Justice Coalition.

Who We Are

CCRC is a Public Benefit Corporation registered in the State of Arizona and a 501c(3) non-profit organization. It aims to bring together a broad network of partners (private individuals, profit, non-profit organizations), united together from within and around the surrounding community, for the purposes of creating and strengthening both community and faith base initiatives, which will facilitate successful reintegration of ex-offenders into the community from incarceration. These initiatives will help to improve the safety of our communities by reducing the need for incarceration (recidivism) in our society and helping individuals become productive citizens.

Ban The Box

On February 16, CCRC sent an email to selected members of the State Legislature expressing our support for an amendment to SB 1069. This amendment was introduced by State Rep. Martin Quezada (D-LD 29) to add a “Ban the Box” provision and allow Arizona to join 15 other States with this provision. As you know, “Ban the Box” would remove the question form job application firms that asks “…have you ever been arrested or convicted of a felony.” The employer will still be able to ask this question only after the person has been given a job offer and references are being checked. The amendment was approved in committee and is moving forward.

Upcoming Meeting – Feb 23
