Our mission is to develop and support various models of justice which create opportunities between victims, offenders, and their communities for healing and restoration. Through these programs, our communities will be a safer and better place in which to live.
What is Restorative Justice?
Restorative Justice is a unique way of thinking about juvenile crime and the delinquency that focuses on the harm done to victims, communities and the relationships between them.
This Restorative Justice viewpoint treats crime and acts of delinquency as real harm done to the real victim(s) and the community, not simply an offense committed against the state.
Further, many victims, together with supporters, express a desire to meet with an offender to have questions answered, to explain how the crime impacted them, and how the offender can attempt to "make things right."
This victim-driven process provides a safe setting for victims, offenders and the community to come together voluntarily to talk about the harmful behavior and ways to repair the harm and restore some sense of healing for the victim.
With offenders, we strive to teach accountability, provide an opportunity for amends, and prevent future problems.
