Systems change for better public safety. LEAD enhances safety, health, and equity by building a community-based alternative to jail and prosecution for people whose unlawful behavior stems from unmet needs related to substance use, mental health challenges, or extreme poverty. It’s become widely accepted that we can’t arrest our way out of the problems related to substance use, mental illness, or extreme poverty. But the crime and harms that can stem from these challenges must not be ignored or minimized. The LEAD model offers communities a better approach to safety and equity. LEAD enhances public safety, health, and equity by building new systems to divert people with unmet needs related to behavioral health or extreme poverty into non-punitive, collaborative, community-based systems of response and care.


We enable denominations, congregations, and people of faith to impact our state on issues such as economic justice and development, human well-being, equality, and compassion and peace, following the example and mission of Jesus Christ. People of faith leading the social justice movement to create equitable, compassionate, and thriving communities for all.

Restoring Opportunities. Strengthening Families & Communities. The NC Second Chance Alliance is a statewide alliance of people with criminal records, their family members, service providers, congregations, community leaders and concerned citizens that have come together to address the causes of criminal records and the barriers they create to successful reentry. Mass incarceration, Racial Disparities, Parental Incarceration, Collateral Consequences and Recidivism,

What is clear to members of the NC Second Chance Alliance is that the current system of incarceration and re-incarceration is not working. Our state’s unfair, revolving-door criminal justice system is undermining the safety of our communities, draining our state’s resources, and failing people with criminal records, especially people of color. We have come together to identify and speak out in support of fair chance practices, policies, and laws that ensure people exiting the criminal justice system have a fair chance to be prosperous, law-abiding community members rather than being automatically excluded from essential opportunities and cycled back into the criminal justice system.

Proof Alliance NC began as the Fetal Alcohol and Drug Program in 1983.
The primary goal of the program was the identification and prevention of problems associated with prenatal drug and alcohol exposure to the residents of North Carolina.

Proof Alliance North Carolina began as a small task force in the early 1980s, charged with the identification and prevention of problems associated with prenatal drug and alcohol exposure to This effort eventually became the Fetal Alcohol and Drug Program and was housed in the Department of Pediatrics, Section on Genetics at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Prenatal alcohol exposure is the leading preventable cause of birth defects in the United States; alcohol use during pregnancy can impact fetal development and cause irreversible birth defects and brain injury. Children with prenatal alcohol exposure are at risk of having fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). FASD is not a diagnosis but rather an umbrella term describing the range of birth defects caused by prenatal alcohol exposure. These effects may include physical, mental, behavioral, and/or learning disabilities with possible lifelong implications. FASD can be prevented by not drinking any alcohol – including wine, wine coolers, beer, mixed drinks/cocktails, or hard liquor – during pregnancy. If you want support to quit drinking, speak to your health care provider. You can learn more about support and treatment options here. Funding in whole or in part and/or supported by the NC Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services, awarded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Prevention and Treatment Block Grant (CFDA # 93.959).
