General information

The Arm & Arm initiative is able to reduce recidivism, increase successful integration back into society, reduce crime and reduce costs in both dollars and lives wasted. Arm & Arm will expand its successes into an even wider community over time. Just as it “takes a village to raise a child”, it takes an entire community to successfully assist in recovery and transition. Arm & Arm unites the community in this effort.
