Community Justice Center

The Community Justice Center (CJC) stands ready to provide advocacy before the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Social Security Administration to assist these wounded warriors in obtaining some measure of financial stability while they try to put their lives back together. This may mean representing individuals in disability proceedings, facilitating referrals to other service providers, serving as a clearinghouse for veterans, their families and service providers, or simply by keeping this issue front and center through our website and other media. No matter what our political beliefs are concerning the war, we can all come together to offer support to the men and women of our country sent to fight a new kind of war, one that has left many of them hopeless, vulnerable -- but still proud.
