Happening Now at CJR

Thanks to the support of many friends in the community, CJR was able to provide a year filled with learning, growth and life-changing experiences for the young people we serve.

Earlier in 2019, we opened a new residential program for boys in Waterbury and several new community-based programs in locations throughout Connecticut. CJR’s new Linking Youth to Natural Communities (LYNC) Program opened at the beginning of 2019, and provides services and referrals to help vulnerable children, youth and families in Danbury, Torrington, Meriden and New London.

To view a slide show of the Meriden LYNC program’s visit to the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, please click here.

Looking forward, CJR’s 2020 Calendar features a wide range of artistic subjects and mediums, including landscapes, animals and more.  Students submitted their pieces of artwork as part of an organization-wide contest and winners were selected for each month based on universal appeal.  The calendar demonstrates the opportunities that CJR boys and girls have to achieve their potential, and showcases one of the many ways we encourage young people to discover and develop new interests and talents.

The calendar is a project we share with friends who support CJR, and it is also a tangible and rewarding project that offers our students the opportunity to see their work featured in a publication.

The contributions of generous friends and donors makes a real difference to CJR boys and girls, many of whom would be in significantly more difficult circumstances without the help they receive from our programs and services.

Please consider how much your support would mean to our young people.  To make a gift, please click here.  Your generous contribution will give some of Connecticut’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged boys and girls hope for the future and the tools to achieve their dreams.  

Thank you, and on behalf of everyone at CJR, I would like to wish you a happy New Year.
