Mission and Vision

Mission:

Through a restorative justice philosophy, RJ Hubs create safe and healthy community spaces where disconnected and court involved youth experience belonging, opportunity and positive transformation.

 

Vision:

Restorative Justice Hubs create healthy and nurturing communities where youth are welcomed and supported. Youth and families are engaged in pro-social, hospitable, and supportive ways that enable youth to express themselves and be supported in becoming responsible members of their community.

This vision will be realized through:

  • Using restorative justice philosophy and practices as the foundation for the RJ Hubs.
  • Recognizing that violence causes trauma and trauma causes violence; hurt people hurt people.
  • Community members taking the lead in creating safe and welcoming spaces within the community.
  • Engaging and collaborating with community and systems resources to support the needs of youth and family.
  • Building, restoring and strengthening relationships.
  • Rooting hospitality and accompaniment in the mission.
  • Promoting the youth’s increased connection to and sense of belonging to the community.
  • Engaging in peacemaking efforts within the community.
  • Advocating for the reinvestment of justice dollars to build community capacity.
  • Evaluating and measuring the impact of these efforts on the safety and well being of the community.
  • Practices that promote healing.
