Since the early days of Justice Assistance's incorporation in November of 1978, the organization has grown and flourished. Every client and every action is important. Our cumulative experiences from each day, week, month and year have helped shape Justice Assistance's mission and message.  Over forty years of experiences have helped us evolve into the mature organization that we are today.
