Top Rated Crime and Law Nonprofits

Crime and Law nonprofits can cover a variety of issues related to the community or individual. Many of the nonprofits focus their efforts on justice and/or making legal services more accessible to underserviced people or providing programs that give people hope for a better situation. Here, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most top-rated crime and law nonprofits in the country. While each nonprofit has its very own mission and purpose, they are all committed to putting an end to crime.

Her Justice

New York, NY

Her Justice believes that economics shouldn’t determine whether or not women and children have access to quality legal services. This nonprofit recruits and mentors volunteer lawyers that can assist women living in poverty with a variety of legal needs. So far, their services and programs have helped over 9,000 women and children with various legal services that impact their life and future success.

“I worked at Her Justice as a summer legal intern and could not have been happier with my experience. The staff attorneys and legal assistants provided unmatched guidance based on their expertise in the area. I was given the opportunity to draft papers, as well as meet with clients and attend court. Providing some of the most vulnerable people in our city with legal assistance was so rewarding. I would highly recommend Her Justice to clients, as well as volunteers!”

This unique nonprofit focuses on offering support and programs to stop the cycle of incarceration in families. The programs have already helped over 9,000 prisoners, and their families learn the tools that they need to become contributing citizens. The program has already received several awards, including the National Award of Excellence in Crime Prevention.

“Wings for Life was a great nonprofit to work with. Their work towards access to families for incarcerated individuals is such a great initiative that isn’t being addressed or focused on by many other organizations. Ann is also a great leader with an extensive network and love for others that allows WFL to flourish the way it has, and it shows with the amount of giving back from the communities she serves.”
