History and Funding:

The Brattleboro Community Justice Center opened its doors in 2003 as a partnership of the Town of Brattleboro, the Vermont Department of Corrections , and the citizens of the community.

The BCJC funding comes through two grants awarded by the Vermont Agency of Human Services and an in-kind match by the Town of Brattleboro . The Justice Center also relies on additional funding (from foundations, tax-exempt donations, etc.) in order to deliver a full compliment of services to the community.

We are a Part of the Community Justice Network of Vermont

The state of Vermont is unique in that the state supports a network of Community Justice Centers that sprung up from the initial grant funds from the Agency of Human Services. While some programs are consistent throughout the State, each Justice Center has its own unique ways of meeting community needs.
