Who We Are

The Osborne Center for Justice Policy and Practice is the policy arm of the Osborne Association dedicated to building a justice system that promotes healing, safety, responsibility, and well-being across generations. Our work values the dignity and worth of every individual and recognizes that effective solutions lie in strengthening and partnering with communities. To achieve justice across generations, we are currently prioritizing our advocacy around two issues that span the life cycle: children of justice-involved parents, and aging in prison and reentry.

What We Do

The Center will generate and advance practice-informed solutions derived from experience and evidence accumulated over decades of providing programs and services at every stage of the criminal justice process, as well as building critical partnerships with those directly affected, community and faith based organizations, corrections, community supervision, courts, and child and family-serving systems.
