The Center for Restorative Programs is based on the philosophy of “restorative justice,” which defines crime or other offenses as a violation of relationships. Restorative Justice is the process of recognizing the injustice, restoring the equity as much as possible, and providing for a more safe and secure future (focusing on the people and relationships damaged rather than the laws that were broken). In many cases, a face-to-face meeting of the victim and offender has been found to provide a sense of justice, fairness, satisfaction and healing that is otherwise not available through traditional criminal justice processes.
