Amity Foundation has a long and successful history working with 1st Nations around the US and Canada. Our partnerships have proven the best outcomes nationally. Members from all nations are welcomed at Amity and live together in harmony.

The mission of the Anti-Recidivism Coalition (ARC) is to change lives and create safe, healthy communities by providing a support and advocacy network for and by formerly incarcerated men and women. To accomplish this mission, ARC advocates for fair policies in the juvenile and criminal justice systems and provides a supportive network and reentry services to formerly incarcerated individuals.

ARC was founded in 2013 as a peer support network for formerly incarcerated people, serving less than 25 members. While the organization continues to prioritize peer support, ARC is now able to offer comprehensive services, including case management, trauma counseling, housing, education and employment assistance, mentorship, and opportunities for civic engagement.
