M:STL – CJM Communications and Development VISTA
In response to the growing needs of individuals and families impacted by the criminal justice system in the St. Louis area, Criminal Justice Ministry (CJM) was formed in 1979. Based on a mission to serve and not to judge those impacted by incarceration, CJM addressed the multiple needs of incarcerated individuals. Reflecting the nationwide movement to “be tough on crime” in the 1980s and 90s, the St. Louis area experienced a drastic increase in the number of individuals incarcerated and those with post-incarceration needs. Therefore, CJM began offering direct help, referrals, and personal support to the increasing number of recently released ex-offenders. In 2003, CJM began its first intensive case management program – Release to Rent – to help individuals reentering society experience success. Over the next fifteen years, CJM quintupled in size, becoming an expert in delivering results-oriented, reentry services and inside ministry.
