Welcome! We are a nonprofit partnership of community members and police departments that offers restorative justice in the wake of crime. Our aim is to provide a process by which victims are heard and understood, offenders take responsibility for harm, and where loved ones and community members offer support.
This site describes who we are, what we do, how to become involved, and ways to offer and sustain restorative justice in your community.
"Expanding the Circle" event
This highly successful C4RJ fundraising event in September featured guest speaker Judge Nancy Gertner (ret.), delicious food prepared and donated by local restaurants, and a silent auction with a variety of choices for interested bidders.
Thank you to all who were involved in making this an event to remember! Particular thanks to those who supported C4RJ's first ticketed fundraiser:

The intent of the Guide is to provide an introduction to the use of restorative practices and to provide school personnel with a resource for designing and implementing these ideas. Click the image below to view the guide.
