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.
