The mission of the Community Model Association of America (CMAA), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is to educate the public and train professionals in community model criminal justice, and to promote and maintain exemplary standards for community model criminal justice programs, in order to benefit individuals in the criminal justice system and the public at large.
View the CMAA sponsored YouTube video about the Community Model in Corrections at Southside Regional Jail in Emporia, Virginia.

Filmed in 2008, all current statistics remain remarkable and available for this 24/7, 12 year continuous residential substance abuse program that has served more than 1700 between 2005-2016.
The hallmark of this immersion experience is that the participants are responsible for the community and their own outcome. Their intentional contributions to the success of all participants demonstrates mutual aid and respect as it ends the "us versus them" mindset that typically excludes.
