To promote public safety and reduce recidivism in a cost-effective way by providing alternative court clients with housing, education and supportive services.
The purpose of PEARL is to help participates develop the skills necessary to attain long term recovery thereby creating an environment (impetus) for lasting positive change while reducing recidivism and criminal offenses associated with addiction.
To maximize our impact on current efforts, we seek to collaborate with other non-profit organizations which fall under the 501(c)(3) section of the Internal Revenue Code and are operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes.
P.E.A.R.L. is a non-profit corporation and shall operate exclusively for the educational and charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or the corresponding section of any future tax code. P.E.A.R.L.’s purpose is to provide positive support to the Benton County Drug Court and Veteran Court Programs and those participants who are working to overcome the challenges of addiction. We will provide additional services to the Benton County Adult Drug Court by supplying items, funding and services, based on need, to benefit or assist in participants' re-entry into the community while sustaining a life free of chemical dependency and/or alcohol. Our goal is to provide positive change opportunities to participants seeking a life free from chemical dependency.
At times, per the discretion of the Board of Directors, we may provide internships and volunteer opportunities which will provide opportunities for involvement in said activities and programs in order to have a greater impact for change.
