How You Can Help

At Justice Assistance, we have been serving the justice-involved community in Rhode Island since 1978.  We are equipped with the credentials and experience to facilitate a positive outcome for the victims of crime and the offenders that receive our services. 

We welcome your help, and there are many ways in which you may help the organization. 

We offer internship opportunities for students studying at an accredited college or university.  We also provide volunteer opportunities for individuals willing to offer their various talents to move the organization’s mission forward. The organization requires that both the internship and volunteer position be regularly scheduled and provide a minimum of 5-hours per week.

Another way you can help Justice Assistance is through a charitable donation. Simply click on the 'Donate' button at the top right of the page to make an online donation to Justice Assistance.  If you participate in the United Way campaign you can simply designate your gift to Justice Assistance by indicating account number 3990 on the United Way pledge card.
