The Institute for Community Justice is a comprehensive prison services and reentry program providing health linkages, supportive services, education, and advocacy for individuals, families, and communities impacted by mass incarceration.

I have to say, ICJ is very good at what they do, so I want to thank them, and I’m proud of myself for doing everything I can to get on my feet.
