At Community Resources for Justice, our mission is to change lives and strengthen communities by advancing policy and delivering individualized services that promote safety, justice, and inclusion.

We empower individuals to overcome social, legal, and policy barriers that limit their opportunities to thrive.

For 140 years, some of society’s most overlooked citizens have benefited from the programs we provide. Click here for a fact sheet on CRJ. Our work is divided into three divisions, each with a distinct practice area and population served:

  • Social Justice Services serves men and women transitioning out of prison and back into the community through a network of eight residential reentry centers operated under contracts with federal, state, and county agencies. The division also runs a residential program for young adults with complex clinical needs. Click here for a fact sheet on SJS.
  • Community Strategies supports adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities to live as independently as possible through a range of community-based residential options offering structure in a caring, home-like environment, as well as day programs. Click here for a fact sheet on CS.
  • The Crime and Justice Institute is a national-scale consulting practice that works with elected officials, justice system practitioners, policy makers, and thought leaders to effect significant reforms to promote safety and justice. Click here for a fact sheet on CJI.

CRJ is a 501c3 non-profit organization.

Guided by excellence, creativity, and compassion, we support individual transitions, strengthen families, promote justice, and improve community safety.
