Staff Chaplains, and spiritual volunteers serve the inmates of the DuPage County Correctional Facility by providing spiritual/emotional support and innovative programming.
Spiritual programming provides a crucial component to well-being, personal growth and transformation. An important goal in providing spiritual interventions is to equip, prepare and encourage ongoing spiritual growth upon returning to the community.
More than 70% of our inmates are incarcerated as a result of their addiction. JUST Addiction Staff and volunteers offer a wide variety of individual counseling, addiction education, and self-help groups.

Educational opportunities offered provide academic, professional and personal growth through such classes as GED, ESL, Horticulture, Decision Making, Anger Management, Job Readiness, Life Skills and Parenting. Vocational training includes Welding, Custodial Maintenance and Construction Trades to better prepare the incarcerated population for the workforce.
