Our History & Mission

Self-sufficient, crime-free and productive—that's our vision for every citizen of Northwest Florida regardless of their history of incarceration.

REAP / ReEntry Alliance Pensacola was founded in 2015 by the Honorable Judge Casey Rodgers of the 11th US Circuit Court. Her vision was to provide justice-involved citizens with a pathway to success following their time serving a sentence of imprisonment.

With the help of a core group of activist attorneys, Judge Rodgers launched REAP's first community outreach program, a garden in Pensacola's historic Brownsville neighborhood.

Art Behind Bars

In 2016, REAP hosted an exhibition of arts and crafts created by inmates of various Florida prisons at the Pensacola Museum of Art.

A Place for Her

[data on % of women ex-cons] After four years of growth, REAP recognizes the urgent need for re-entry services for women in Northwest Florida. In 2019 we will be expanding our program to meet the unique needs of women and mothers who are returning from prison. Specially trained case workers and separate housing facilities will ensure the safety and success of female participants.
