REACH Edmonton

REACH Edmonton was one of six recipients to receive the 2017 Alberta Community Justice Award in the Partnerships and Collaboration category.

The Alberta Community Justice Awards recognize the outstanding contributions of individuals and organziations to neighbourhood safety, social outreach and crime prevention.

“We are pleased that the work of REACH is being recognized with this award,” said REACH Edmonton’s Executive Director Jan Fox. “But none of this work would have been possible without the contribution and endless work of our community partners. All of our successes have truly been a community effort.”

REACH was honoured for its work as a backbone organization: forging partnerships to develop innovative solutions to crime prevention and community safety challenges. Specific partnerships that were recognized included the 24/7 Crisis Diversion, WrapED and the REACH Immigrant and Refugee Initiative (RIRI) [links for each].

The Alberta Community Justice Awards have rewarded innovative people and projects in the areas of victims’ services, youth justice, restorative justice and other crime prevention efforts for the past 26 years.
