Mission

JusticePoint is dedicated to the promotion of evidence-informed criminal justice programs, practices, and policies.

The effect of these improved outcomes is not limited to criminal justice stakeholders, practitioners, defendants, and victims but has a direct impact on the quality of life for all in the community. Reduction in key criminal justice outcomes such as recidivism has a cumulative effect. By stunting or limiting the recurrence of criminal activity criminal role modeling and the cycle of victimization can be eliminated.

Post-Conviction Case Management

The Supervised Release program offers case management services to individuals released under Chapter 980. Eligibility is determined by the State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

Population(s) Served

JusticePoint utilizes the research behind Risk, Need, and Responsivity to craft diversion programs for communities that focus on appropriate system intervention and behavior-change techniques. By using these principles, local systems can triage available resources and target higher risk and higher need criminal justice-involved populations with them. JusticePoint can develop and manage diversion programs that serve low and moderate-risk clientele entering pre-arrest, pre-charge, and post-charge agreements. Our services include grant writing, consultation and program startup, case management, and program coordination. We also provide drug and alcohol testing as part of our full program package offerings. Diversion programs operating using evidence-based practices have shown to be effective at reducing recidivism in multiple-site diversion studies. Diversion programs are also an effective means of restitution collection which is a benefit to victims.

Population(s) Served

Pretrial Case Management/Conditional Release enables the release of individuals from custody pending pretrial hearings. The Judge orders certain conditions that an individual must agree to abide by in order to be released from custody before their case is resolved. Pretrial Case Management aims to ensure individuals attend their scheduled pretrial court hearings and do not engage in behavior that could cause further criminal justice system involvement. Case managers work individually with clients to address barriers to court appearance, mental health concerns, substance use disorder, transportation needs, education or employment resources, and other areas that a client may need assistance with.

Population(s) Served

Pretrial Screening takes place while individuals in custody await their first court appearance. Information is gathered by an interview with the individual, their criminal history, and their previous court appearances (if applicable) to complete a pretrial risk assessment, mental health screen, substance use screen, and risk and needs assessment screen. These assessments and screens and compiled for the Judge, prosecutors, and defense attorney's to assist in making an informed release decision.

Population(s) Served

These courts focus on a specific type of offense as well as targeting individuals who are high risk and high need for re-offense in a life domain the court is designed to target. Examples include drug treatment, mental health, DUI/OWI, domestic violence, veterans, and family. JusticePoint provides a gamut of services for these court types ranging from consultation and program startup, to electronic monitoring, screening, assessment, case management, and program coordination. We also provide drug and alcohol testing as part of our full program package offerings. Problem-Solving Courts have shown the ability to reduce crime and affect real, positive change in the lives of people they serve.

Population(s) Served

Peer support services empower individuals by pairing them with others who have been through, and overcome, similar experiences. These peer support specialists receive specialized training to leverage their own lived experiences and create positive and meaningful growth for themselves and others.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
