We Rely On You

All too often, we hear victims lament, “No one was listening to what I wanted.” We hear offenders who seem stuck, “I messed up but I don’t know what to do now.” And police officers tell us, “I’m looking for another option.” With your help, we can offer restorative justice in response to these appeals.

If you share this vision, we need your help. Here are ways you can support restorative justice:
