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.
Restorative practices in schools
C4RJ is proud to announce the availability of A Restorative Practices Guide—How Schools Can Build Community and Address Conflicts. This guide is the final product of a three-year grant to introduce Restorative Practices into the Malden High School. 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.

C4RJ celebrates 18 years of growth and success!
