Community Partners in Action (CPA) is a nonprofit organization that works with adults and youth throughout Connecticut, supporting the transition from life in the criminal justice system to life in the community.

Our commitment to ensuring participants have the right to work; the right to an adequate standard of living including food, clothing, and housing; the right to physical and mental health services; and the right to education has never wavered since our founding in 1875.

As an employee working in one of the following programs you will have the opportunity to positively impact the lives of the adults and youth in our care and create a safer, and more integrated society:

    • Holistic alternatives to incarceration, reentry services, community service, transitional housing, residential supervision of adults and youth and a prison arts program.

Annually serving over 4,000 participants, our work is possible due to partnerships with and support from state and federal grants, individual donors and organizational funders.

Join us in the belief that people deserve a second chance.
