Community Resources for Justice’s Corporate Partners program is running strong nearly halfway through the fiscal year with generous support from private companies showing their dedication to CRJ’s mission of changing lives and strengthening communities.

Donations from private individuals, organizations, and businesses allow CRJ to enhance its work beyond what government contracts cover. That support can mean a new air conditioner during a sweltering summer for one of our group homes for adults with developmental disabilities, a guest speaker to visit one of our programs for individuals transitioning from incarceration to the community, or having our Crime and Justice Institute staff join a conference with other leaders in criminal justice reform.

Rounding out the 2018 calendar year, CRJ is extremely thankful to Boston law firm Casner & Edwards for its $5,000 donation in December, which will go toward CRJ’s leadership development efforts. In addition to the financial support, Casner & Edwards hosted a strategic planning session for CRJ’s senior leadership.

“The work that CRJ does each and every day is vitally important not just to the thousands of individuals whose lives it touches directly each year, but to all of our communities by making them stronger, fairer, and more inclusive,” said Scott Harshbarger, chairman of CRJ’s board of directors and senior counsel at Casner & Edwards. “Support from private organizations is a clear endorsement of that important work, and it allows CRJ to go the extra mile for individuals who often have no one else to advocate for them.”

CRJ’s corporate partners who have continued their support in FY2019 also include:

  • Sallop and Weisman, PC
  • Murphy, Hesse, Toomey & Lehane
  • Team Engineer NH, PLLC
  • RSM
  • USI Insurance Services, LLC
  • Loredo & Smith, LLP
  • The MENTOR Network
  • Hays Companies
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts

“CRJ is grateful to the individuals and businesses that have stepped up year after year and demonstrated their commitment to safety, justice, and inclusion,” CRJ President & CEO John Larivee said. “Their support has a direct positive impact on the lives and futures of the individuals we serve.”
