For over 100 years, Community Resources for Justice has cared for and supported some of our most challenged residents.
Whether transitioning offenders back into mainstream society, diverting at-risk youth away from crime and toward productive and fulfilling lives, or providing those with intellectual disabilities with a chance to grow and flourish in the community, CRJ welcomes and fosters change.
Our research and consulting services advance evidence-based practices inform systems-level change while our community-based programs promote public safety and individual growth for some of society’s most challenged individuals.
Our Social Justice Services Division offers residential and community-based programs which, for adults, focus on re-entry support for men and women involved with county, state and federal criminal justice systems. The youth programs provide structured and goal-oriented programming for neglected, at-risk and delinquent youth. In both cases, our goal is to foster positive lifestyle changes, preparing our consumers for successful family reunification and community reintegration.
At CRJ, our employees believe that society gains when all people are given the support and tools to lead responsible, productive and dignified lives.
