MANCHESTER, N.H. -- On Feb. 2, Social Justice Services’ Hampshire House was awarded re-accreditation through the American Correctional Association (ACA).

This achievement is significant, as receiving this honor from the ACA is widely viewed as a gold-standard accomplishment in the field of corrections.

During the course of the past three years, the Hampshire House team worked closely with Community Resources for Justice’s Standards and Quality Assurance Department to ensure that the program was had satisfied a host of mandatory and non-mandatory operational standards. These standards range from complying with measures related to the program’s facility, resident treatment, programming, and rights, personnel policies, and host of other procedural measures. Following last year’s audit, the Hampshire House team was awarded an overall score of 99.4%, the highest score that a Community Resources for Justice program has been awarded to date.

This importance of this achievement by the Hampshire House team cannot be understated. The near-perfect score earned by the program illustrates CRJ’s commitment to delivering the highest quality programming to those we serve, as well as the company’s ongoing pursuit of industry-wide excellence.
