Community Justice Programs

Community Justice Programs, saving millions of dollars in incarceration costs each year

Volunteers of America believes that innovative, restorative, evidence-based programming improves lives and communities. Our communities benefit by having defendants and offenders work towards change without unnecessary incarceration. Our staff members monitor the progress of clients and help them manage justice requirements so that communities are safe and clients continue to work, remain with family, and act responsibly in the community. This approach saves millions of dollars in incarceration costs each year, reducing the cost burden to the State of Maine.

Our programs include:

  • Batterers Intervention: As ordered by Probation or DHHS – for men from Sagadahoc, Lincoln and Eastern Cumberland Counties.
  • ReEntry Center at Two Bridges Regional Jail, provides reentry services to men and women. Staff members meet with inmates to facilitate change and create realistic release plans.
