We seek justice for our youth and address their needs if engaged in the juvenile justice system

Juvenile Justice Programs:

Bridges: helps participants transition into adulthood by assisting with independent apartment living in Bridgeport, Norwalk, and Stamford

Invictus, pre-release/re-entry program: work with youth six months before released from incarceration and up to a year after to help them prepare for and gain employment, in order to ensure a successful transition back to the community

Juvenile Review Board: offers first-time misdemeanor offenders an alternative to the juvenile justice system

Lockwood Avenue Community Center: in addition to housing Trailblazers, Work & Learn, and Lion’s Den, our facility is also a vibrant community center for Stamford’s East Side

Project New Hope street outreach program: engages high-risk youth who are on the path to—or are already engaged in—violence and/or gang activity

Work & Learn employment-readiness training center: provides paid job-skills training to the most struggling youth in our programs, teaching bicycle repair, woodworking, small-engine repair, food preparation, and furniture refurbishing.
