Through NJRC's pro bono legal services program, clients are screened and provided assistance with driver’s license restoration. Through this program, more than 200 driver’s licenses have been successfully restored since the program’s inception.

NJRC then assists in securing employment for their clients by sustaining relationships with employers that are “background-friendly” and working to educate employers on the benefits of hiring someone with a criminal background.
