The Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice (CJCJ)‘s 14 model direct service programs ensure that justice-involved young people and adults receive crucial support they need. Since 1985, we have worked diligently to support our clients and reduce society’s reliance on incarceration as a solution to social problems.

Help us continue our impact this #GivingTuesday. Your tax-deductible donation will fund CJCJ programs like Community Options for Youth, which provides mental health support and life skills development to justice-involved youth and their families. It will also support the Children’s Waiting Rooms, which offer free childcare for thousands of low and moderate-income parents who need to appear in court. 

At CJCJ, our clients and staff work together to develop community-based solutions for safer and healthier neighborhoods across California. We invite you to join us today to help bring positive change to our communities and our criminal justice system.
