Project Reset in Queens provides
programming that encourages
participants to reflect on their
arrest experience, connect with
their community, and develop skills
for avoiding further involvement
with the justice system.

Project Reset in Queens is provided by the Queens Community Justice Center. Participants can resolve their case by completing one session; staff work with each participant to choose the type of programming best suited for them. Options include an interactive group with a focus on procedural justice and the criminal justice process, and an individual session where participants can discuss specific topics and receive referrals to appropriate community-based services. Project Reset programming gives participants the opportunity to learn about the criminal justice system, explore any
challenges that may have led to their arrest, and
discuss strategies to avoid future involvement with the system.
