Jackson County Community Justice, in partnership with the Pathfinders Network, provides peer support services for Justice Involved individuals.
The Resilience & Recovery Project (R&R Project) walks alongside justice-involved individuals to build individual, social, and community resources. This promotes long term resilience and Recovery, successful completion of supervision, and successful reintegration into the community. Peer Support Specialists, with lived experience, engage participants in a goal-oriented collaborative relationship and provide personalized support through holistic and responsive individual and group support services. We work together to reinforce successes to build self-efficacy, hope, and resilience whether participants need one-time, short-term, or long-term support.
The program operates from an evidence-based, gender-responsive, trauma-informed, recovery-oriented, person-centered, and relationship-focused foundation. Anchored by their lived experience and expertise, Peer Support Specialists are trained on Creating Regulation and Resilience (CR/2), a trauma-informed communication Model that will enhance their one to one and in the moment interactions with participants to facilitate growth and change.
Participants will have access to a variety of Gender Specific classes and groups facilitated by Peer Support Specialists at the Resource Center and Transition Center. Peer Support Specialists will work with participants to provide navigation, resources, referrals and support successful engagement with community supervision and other legal obligations. To aid in their success, Resilience & Recovery Project staff will work with Resource and Transition Center staff, Parole and Probation Officers, community resources and other personal supports in the participant’s life.
