Most criminal justice systems around the world are retributive. These retributive justice systems use punishment to offenders to hold them accountable for their actions. Through God's transforming power, Restorative Justice seeks to repair the damage, right the wrong and bring healing to all involved, including the victim, the offender, the families and the community.
Keep checking back for info on our next program/workshop!
