Helping adults and youth (12-17) who are involved in criminal behaviour to reflect upon their actions, take accountability and repair harm through trauma-informed, restorative processes.
Crime Impact Sessions
One-on-one sessions which help people identify their root causes and triggers, increase their capacity for empathy, explore meaningful ways to take accountability, and create a positive path forward. This process includes discussion regarding any further needed supports or resources in community, as well as an exploration of whether a face-to-face dialogue with person(s) harmed is appropriate.
Victim/ Offender Dialogues
A pre or post sentence victim-centered restorative process, bringing individuals together who have been impacted by harmful behaviours. The session will focus on responsibility and accountability of the offender, addressing victim’s needs, and repairing harm caused.
Apology Letter Support
One-on-one support with writing a meaningful apology as part of the restorative justice process or as ordered by probation or court.

What is restorative justice?
Restorative solutions are based on restorative justice — an approach to justice that helps meet the needs of people faced with crime and conflict in an inclusive and meaningful way. It provides opportunities, for those who have been harmed and those who have caused harm, to be active participants in their journey for justice, accountability, and reparation.
