Mission

Putting Our Community Back to Work. The NJRC works with returning citizens, employers, and community partners to remove barriers to employment so that everyone in our community can be safer, healthier, and better employed.

Vision

The NJRC strives to develop a culture where people with histories of incarceration face no barriers to employment and are no more likely to be arrested than people who have not been incarcerated.

Culture

The NJRC is a professional job and training procurement agency with a sensitivity to the unique needs that returning citizens have in finding and retaining quality employment. The NJRC is evidence based, efficient, collaborative, apolitical, client focused, data driven, and its employees at all times comport themselves accordingly.

  • Seeing the Whole Client: Clients Need More than Just Job Options, They Need Help Putting all the Pieces Together for a New Life
