Joanne Page

JoAnne Page has over 40 years’ experience in criminal justice, with the last 30 of those years at the helm of The Fortune Society. Under Ms. Page’s stewardship, The Fortune Society has been recognized as a national leader in criminal justice advocacy and as a pioneer in assisting former prisoners to reintegrate into society. The organization offers more than a dozen programs including mental health and substance abuse treatment, counseling, family services, HIV/AIDS health services, employment services, creative arts and housing. These innovative and successful initiatives have become models for similar programs across the country. Ms. Page is especially proud of the housing programs that she has developed. This includes the opening of the groundbreaking Fortune Academy in 2002, the nationally recognized transitional residence housing individuals released from incarceration into homelessness. Ms. Page took an abandoned drug den and turned it into a place of hope and understanding. In 2010, Fortune opened Castle Gardens, a certified LEED Gold, green, mixed affordable and supportive permanent housing development with 114 apartments and 20,000 square feet of service space. Fortune’s housing model is currently being replicated in Syracuse, NY. A graduate of Yale Law School, JoAnne is a frequent speaker at conferences and presentations about criminal justice issues
