Our community thrives when we work together for good.

Over the last five decades, our services and our volunteers have helped tens of thousands of people get through difficult times. Without these services, local courts would be overloaded with minor cases, and many people would have suffered needlessly because there is no one else to turn to for the services they need.

 

 

  • Your contribution will be used to help people in our community.
    85% of every dollar goes to direct program work.

  • CCJ needs you!
    The more volunteers we have the more people we can help.

  • Your donation will help us achieve our mission.

  • See if there is an opportunity for you.

  • Our door is always open. Let us know what is on your mind.

Thank You! Your supports allows us help 2,000 people every year.

CCJ LAUNCHES NEW PROGRAM SERVING SCHENECTADY AND ALBANY COUNTIES

The Legal Hand Call-In Center serving Schenectady and Albany Counties

At Legal Hand, trained community Volunteers, who are not lawyers, provide free information, assistance, and referrals to help people resolve issues that affect their lives, in the area like employment, housing, family, immigration domestic violence, and benefits, and try to prevent problems from turning into legal actions.  There are no eligibility requirements, and all are welcome.  We provide assistance by phone, text, email and chat.  We can also meet with you virtually.
