What We Do
The Community Justice Center (CJC) is a Restorative Justice organization offering institutional and community programming that serves the needs of victims, offenders, and the community. We provide effective and evidence-based programming and forensic peer support in all Nebraska Correctional Institutions, Douglas County Jail, Lancaster County Jail, Nebraska communities, and with Nebraska Probation Reporting Centers statewide.
The Community Justice Center’s work heals victims, communities, and offenders through the transformative power of restorative justice. Learn about our work and support real community healing, lower recidivism, elevating victim's voices, and increased safety.
We are victims, offenders, their families, and allies working to implement restorative justice practices in our communities. For almost twenty years, CJC has provided forensic peer evidence-based restorative justice classes in prisons and probation districts across Nebraska, assisting thousands of justice-involved individuals within the criminal justice system.
We serve everyone involved in the criminal justice system: victims, offenders and the community with healing-centered resources and research-backed education.
Our work keeps thousands of people out of prison, provides a new path for current justice involved people, increases public safety, helps heal victims, and saves tax dollars.
