Bringing community healing and wholeness through restorative justice practices.
The Mission of HOPE City is to bring community healing and wholeness through restorative justice practices. Our Vision is to see communities healed and reconciled where restorative justice is the natural response to crime or wrongdoing.
What is Restorative Justice?
Restorative justice is an approach to address crime or conflict. It focuses on the needs of victims to heal from harm they incurred; it increases offender accountability to repair the actual harm caused; and includes impacted community members to assist all in developing terms of how to best move forward. When victims, offenders and community members meet to decide how to do that, the results can be transformational.
