Inspiring Service in
Challenging Times

A Report to Donors
For over 42 years Amicus has been serving Minnesotans with criminal records
who are in search of a second chance. We work with inmates, ex-offenders,
and juveniles in the criminal justice system, helping them make the life
changes they need to achieve long-term success. We also reach out to
communities, recruiting volunteers and donors to get involved with us,
connecting with partners who can make our work more effective and offering
the power of positive relationships and the need for justice that strengthens our

As is the case with most nonprofits, these last two years have been
challenging for Amicus. We have implemented large budget cuts, including
hours and benefits reductions for staff and painful layoffs of dedicated
 coworkers. We have also spent time refocusing on our core priorities and
seeking greater efficiency in an effort to keep service levels high despite
reduced resources.

In the following pages we will provide a snapshot of how Amicus has served offenders, ex-offenders and
juveniles; a rundown of the key activities which have shaped our organization over the last two years and an
idea of all those who support our work. As a donor and stakeholder, we believe you have a right to know how
your investment has been stewarded. We encourage you to read this brief document and contact us with any
questions, ideas or concerns.

Thank you for your support.

Louise Wolfgramm,

Amicus partners with inmates, ex-offenders, juvenile offenders and communities to
build successful lives and stronger communities.

Amicus helps offenders transition from confinement to community.
The Amicus model is relationship-based, community-driven,culturally specific and outcome-oriented.

Through leadership, programming, policy and partnership, Amicus:
- Brings offenders into positive human connection so that they may experience a sense of belonging
- Increases the number of offenders who make a successful transition into
  community life and become active and contributing community members
- Educates and encourages communities to be welcoming and supportive
- Instills hope and transforms lives.

Following Our Progress
The Following Strategic Outcomes Were Adopted by the Board of Directors in 2007

Outcome 1: Amicus expands the number of community partnerships
Outcome 2: Amicus expands programs to serve more offenders in transition
Outcome 3: Amicus increases its number of trained volunteers
Outcome 4: Amicus stabilizes its finances and core programming
Outcome 5: Amicus increases its impact by sharing its knowledge.

Community Partnerships
True to its name as the Latin translation of “friend,” Amicus has always functioned from the perspective that
it cannot do its important work alone. An informal survey of our activities in 2009 indicated that we have
relationships with over 100 agencies in the private, public and nonprofit sectors and that number expands
each year. For example, Amicus Reconnect works with dozens of community partners who can offer jobs,
housing, furniture, transportation, food, clothing and more. Amicus One to One works regularly with
communities of faith from across the metro area, encompassing a wide range of religious beliefs.

Over the past few years the number of organizations involved with reentry services has greatly expanded.
Many of these organizations are also our competitors for various contracts and grants. Our goal is to work
together when we can, compete well when we must and expand our partnerships whenever it will lead to
greater service for those we work with.

Transition Services Overview
Amicus currently provides transition services for adults seeking a second chance after their incarceration
through One to One, Reconnect, Sisters Helping Sisters and Employment Advantage. Adult Transitions
services were greatly impacted by the loss of Minnesota Department of Corrections funding in 2008 and then
again in 2009, resulting in staff layoffs in both One to One and Reconnect, a cutback in service hours for
Reconnect and the discontinuation of the Men of Rafiki program. Further cuts in Amicus transitions service
were avoided in the summer 2009 when Amicus was awarded a federal reentry grant administered through
the Minnesota Department of Public Safety. The reentry grant also allows revitalized activity in the Amicus
Employment Advantage program, which helps former offenders overcome the stigma of a felony on their
record so they can succeed in the mainstream job market.

One to One matches trained volunteers with individual offenders for long-term visits, correspondence
and friendship. It operates in state correctional facilities at Lino Lakes, Shakopee, Stillwater and Oak Park
Heights. Amicus’ first program is still going strong with 177 active volunteer matches in December 2009.
We’re proud of the fact that the number of new matches made has increased in each of the last three fiscal

Reconnect provides specialized, one-on-one
planning and referrals for reentering offenders
who are searching for jobs, housing, ID, and
other needs. In FY2009 Reconnect served 4,963
clients. That’s down from 5,554 clients served
in FY2008, primarily due to shortened hours and
fewer staff. Amicus has moderated the impact
of revenue losses on Reconnect client service
by increasing staffing through unpaid college
interns and volunteers.

Those working with our clients have noticed
the need for Reconnect services rising as people
with criminal records cope with an always-chal-
lenging job market made even more difficult by Amicus Men of Rafiki
the recession.

Men of Rafiki: One of the most difficult moves for the organization in FY2009 was the shelving of the
Amicus Men of Rafiki program due to loss of a contract from the Minnesota Department of Corrections. Since
its establishment in 1997, over 1200 African American men have gone through this life changing program. It
served 208 men in calendar year 2008 and had shown very promising numbers in terms of its effect on reducing
recidivism. As these men continue to live by the principles they learned through Men of Rafiki, they will be our
program’s truest legacy.

Sisters Helping Sisters offers specialized supports for women offenders, including a personal
empowerment group, re-entry planning classes and intensive staff help with transition and re-entry.
This program incorporates elements of One to One, Employment Advantage and Reconnect into its
curriculum. In both calendar years 2008 and 2009 it served 46 women.

Services for Juveniles
Amicus Radius is a nationally-known research-based program model for girls in the juvenile justice
system. Focused on strengthening important relationships and healing from the impact of trauma, Radius pro-
vides programs designed to meet the specific needs of girls. Founded in 2000 it works with clients in the Twin
Cities metro area in both community-based and out-of-home settings. Radius currently serves more than 120
girls a year. Radius’ service partners are Ramsey County Juvenile Probation, Ramsey County Juvenile Deten-
tion Center, Hennepin County Juvenile Probation, Suburban Hennepin County Intermediate School District 287,
and Dakota County Juvenile Probation. Amicus also facilitates a group for boys involved in the juvenile justice
system through Dakota County Juvenile Probation.

Sharing Our
The Amicus Institute functions as the
agency’s testing ground for new ideas and
development of best practices.

Current projects include:
- A diversity training project with the St. Paul
Police Department which focuses on helping
departments in their own efforts to better
implement racially fair policing.                   Reconnect Coordinator Mary Maas at MACCRAY School Training

- The Amicus Girls Study – a two-year project which examines the treatment of girls within Minnesota’s
 juvenile justice system from the perspectives of professionals, parents and the girls themselves.

- The Tri County Amicus Girls’ Academy – an innovative new project to partner with three
east-metro county governments, nonprofits and others to launch and sustain a female responsive and
restorative justice-based day treatment program for court-involved girls.

MnCoSA – From 2007 to 2009 Amicus partnered with the Minnesota Department of Corrections on the
Minnesota Circles of Support and Accountability (MnCoSA) project, which aims to substantially
reduce the risk of future victimization by supporting people convicted of sex offenses as they reenter
the community. Amicus played a leading role in developing the MnCoSA curriculum, recruited 63
volunteers, trained 49 volunteers and helped coordinate 13 circles of support.

The Amicus Training Academy provides training to professionals and stakeholders in the
fields of corrections, social work, education, and more. It offers innovative and practical instruction about
working with clients, students and case subjects more effectively.
Recent projects include:
“It’s All About the Relationship...All Together For Our Students”
MACCRAY School District, Raymond, MN
A comprehensive eight-hour training for over 125 school district staff, focusing on relationship-building as a
primary tool in creating a healthier and more productive school environment.

“From Gender Theory to Responsive Practice: Making Your Job Easier”
Offered by Amicus in conjunction with the Minnesota Corrections Association Gender Training, St. Peter and
Tower MN.
The training drew over 100 people from corrections, community organizations, and various other professions.
The day focused on how to work more effectively with females in the justice system.

Volunteers, VISTAS and
Amicus continues to build on an already strong volunteer
program. In addition to the 177 active volunteer matches in
the One to One program, Amicus has worked with volunteers
to help staff its front desk, help orient other volunteers and
support special events.
Interns are often involved in research and evaluation projects
for Amicus. Others enrich our services to Reconnect clients
while gaining hands-on experience in their field.

crucial in areas such as developing the Amicus Academy,
supporting Institute research projects, improving our under-
standing and services related to Reconnect, providing new
ideas and perspectives to Radius, reaching out to new volun-
teers and even identifying new potential sources for continued
organization funding.

                                                             between adult and juvenile offenders and their communities.
