Our Mission

The Center for Community Justice programs and services provide community-based remedies in the pursuit of peaceful resolutions, accountability and justice.

We're proud to work for our community. Our programs, based on restorative justice principles, include Re-entry services, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), Restitution, Community Accountability Boards, and Community Service.

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.
Our programs don’t work without volunteers. Find out what you can do to help people in need.
