Restorative Justice Center
It takes a community. Be part of it.
“Restorative Justice is founded on respect ..."Respect for all, even those who are different from us.
Respect reminds us of our interconnectedness, but also of our differences. Respect insists we balance concerns for all parties. If we pursue justice as respect, we will do justice restoratively.”
— Howard Zehr
ORLEANS COUNTY RESTORATIVE JUSTICE CENTER
Making Change Possible
The Orleans County Restorative Justice Center empowers community members to restore harmed relationships, addresses the underlying causes of conflict and crime, and improves the quality of life in our community.
Restorative Justice - The Basics
Central focus: Victim’s needs and offender responsibility for repairing harm
Crime is a violation of people and relationships
Violations create obligations
Justice involves victims, offenders, and community members in an effort to put things right
What We Do
The goal of restorative justice is to provide a path in resolving conflict when possible, that maintains community relationships, and cohesiveness. Through changing our perspectives and expectations on how we manage conflict, it is our hope to bring our community and its members resolution, creating a safer place for all to live and thrive.
The Orleans County Restorative Justice Center is committed to creating a diverse environment and providing services that are
respectful and inclusive of all people without regard to race, religion, national origin, gender, gender identity, or expression,
sexual orientation, disability, age, or veteran status.
We know that our greatest strength comes from the staff and volunteers at the center, and our community partners.
For the OCRJC, inclusion, and diversity are ingrained in who we are.
