CRJ Staff GO BLUE to support Child Abuse Prevention
Expungement Petition Assistance
Under certain circumstances, a person may be eligible to have their criminal conviction or charge expunged. This opportunity is only available for qualifying crimes. Some crimes such as a DUI, violent offenses, and most felonies are not eligible.
CRJ has staff trained to help people navigate the process of filing a petition with the court to have their record expunged. Our service is offered at no cost; there is, however, a $90 court filing fee (that may be eligible for a fee waiver based on income)
If you would like help filing a petition or would like more information on expungement, call CRJ today!
CRJ Receives Opportunity Fund for Southshire Youth Grant
Center for Restorative Justice (CRJ) is excited to announce it has received an Opportunity Fund for Southshire Youth grant from the Vermont Community Foundation!
CRJ will use the funding to offer a week-long summer Youth Empowerment Program. The program will serve 10 at-risk youth with priority referrals coming from DCF & CRJ.
The goal of the program is to provide at-risk youth in our community a week-long experience that will hopefully empower, encourage and inspire them onto positive life paths.
We are so excited to offer this program and are very grateful to have the support from the special funders supporting the Opportunity Fund for Southshire Youth grant program.
Details about enrolling in the program and more information will be available this spring.
