The field of restorative practice is a constantly evolving one and we find more and more situations in which to apply restorative principles – schools, the work place, the larger community, health care, etc. Our core programs are:
We try to represent victims at the center of our work. We are an ear to listen and can make referrals or problem solve.
Comprised of community volunteers, these panels work with pre-adjudicated offenders, those on probation, or people on a pre-charge basis. The key element is the willingness to accept responsibility for the offense.
Resource navigating and case management support for incarcerated offenders re-entering their communities. CoSA – Circles of Support and Accountability are groups of 3-4 community volunteers who “walk with” the offender to ensure adjustment and to avoid re-incarceration. Family Group Conferencing and other services may also be available.
Ranges from mediation services to peacemaking circles to community discussion like the very popular Community Commons.
