"CJM became the foundation that I needed to navigate the world that I no longer knew. Unlike so many other transitional programs, CJM is the whole package for reentry. CJM did not just provide the financial assistance I needed for clothing, food, transportation, and housing. They also provided emotional support and encouragement that I had lost when I lost my father. CJM became the family I no longer had." -David Nonemaker
