Community Resources for Justice promotes a safe and just society for all people through direct care programs, education, research and advocacy. With a core belief in the fundamental dignity of each individual, CRJ’s programs address the needs and improve the future prospects of troubled youth, ex-offenders, and adults with development disabilities and mental retardation. We provide comprehensive residential and day services for people who need assistance to lead safe and productive lives through a network of programs in New England. Our Crime and Justice Institute promotes systems of justice and social welfare that are effective, fair and humane through research, program development, advocacy and professional assistance. The broad scope of our work helps vulnerable and marginalized individuals reach their potential to lead civil, productive and satisfying lives, and contributes to the revitalization and empowerment of urban communities.
