Working with some of society's most vulnerable people for over 130 years


For more than 130 years, some of society’s most challenged citizens have benefitted from the programs and services we provide.  Our work is organized along three areas of practice:

  • Social Justice Services transitions ex offenders back into mainstream society and diverts at-risk youth away from crime and toward a productive and fulfilling life;


  • Community Strategies provides adults with intellectual disabilities a chance to grow and flourish in the community by offering residence in small group home settings;


  • Crime and Justice Institute provides nonpartisan policy analysis, consulting, and research services to improve public safety throughout the country. With a reputation built over many decades for innovative thinking, unbiased issue analysis, and effective policy advocacy, CJI's strength lies in our ability to bridge the gap between research, policy, and practice in public institutions and communities, and provide evidence-based, results-driven recommendations.
