Tjillari Justice Aboriginal Corporation (ICN 8195)

Tjillari Justice Aboriginal CorporationTjillari Justice is a social trans-formational enterprise established to break the cycle of inter-generational offending. Based on sound research and data we have established an early intervention program to address the developmental need of Aboriginal children with toxic stress and neurological impact (healthy brain development) associated with parental incarceration. We aim to build resilient children and strong families through educating their parents and giving them skills to address the behaviors caused by these stressors. Early intervention has been found to be a major factor in diverting our people away from the justice system.
