CJCJ serves Bay Area populations with specialized needs, including formerly incarcerated people with mental illness, homelessness, violent criminal histories and drug addiction, and youth facing or transitioning from the juvenile justice system. CJCJ’s approach to criminal and juvenile justice interventions is sensitive to the needs of men, women and youth of the Bay Area’s diverse cultural communities.
CJCJ’s direct service headquarters are located at 40 Boardman Place, San Francisco, CA 94103. The administrative office hours are Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. However, many of CJCJ’s direct services operate off-site, in our seven satellite facilities and offices or in the community.
