I am working on starting a peer court in Georgia, and I grew up in Alaska, so I contacted North Star to get information about their operations. I spoke with Denise and Angela, who were helpful and supportive. They offered recommendations and shared some of the problems they have faced and how they overcame those problems. I appreciate them taking time out of their day to share their expertise with me!
