Improving Justice System Conditions, Outcomes and Opportunities for American Youth and Adults

Founded in 2015, Impact Justice is a national innovation and research center focused on justice reform. It works to dramatically reduce the massive number of youth and adults in the justice system, improve conditions and outcomes for those who are incarcerated and provide meaningful opportunities for formerly incarcerated people to rejoin their communities.

“With NetSuite, we can run an $11 million budget with three finance staff. We would have had to incur an extraordinary amount of expense—that otherwise would have benefited the organisation—had we not implemented this system.” Kate Feeney, Associate Director of Finance, Impact Justice

Imagine, Innovate, Impact Change

Solutions to tough problems
Through its Impact/Innovations initiative, the organisation provides safe homes to former inmates, explores restorative justice in intimate partner and sexual violence and illuminates childhood trauma’s impact on those incarcerated. The Restorative Justice project shepherds youth through diversion programs in lieu of criminal charges and time in the juvenile justice system.
Tackling key challenges
Impact Justice’s funding landscape shifts every year, with grant opportunities phasing in and out over time, making the effort that much more difficult. Intentional growth is another challenge for Impact Justice, which strives to maintain a consistent organisational culture based on the true grassroots place that it started from.
Growing intentionally
Rapid growth in a four-year span created challenges. Tracking 20-30 different funding sources became nearly impossible with its previous project management system, and poor integration between their outsourced firm and its backend systems meant obtaining up-to-date financial statements could take up to six months. Implementing NetSuite and participating in the Suite Pro Bono Program helped solve operational workflow challenges.
Impressive success rates
Currently building a new facility that will also house other local nonprofits, Impact Justice is planning a “social justice hub” in Oakland and is continually seeking out new opportunities and ways to expand its outreach.
