The Restorative Justice Network is a private, faith-based
organization dedicated and committed to promoting a restorative philosophy of
Justice in public policy, society at large and the lives of individuals by
educating, facilitating and initiating the restorative approach. The Restorative Justice Network pools
the resources of various agencies, organizations and individuals to provide
services and support aimed at restoring those whose lives have been impacted by
crime. The Restorative Justice Network exists to lobby the
legislature and DOC, promote restorative rather than retributive justice in the community,
provide a model for comprehensive rehabilitation programs, organize a network
of community-based service providers to effectively funnel
services, resources, and aid to inmates during their incarceration, in their
transition, and as a part of their aftercare.
The Restorative Justice Network is exploring new
and time-tested strategies for solving the problems associated with crime and
retribution. The Restorative Justice
Network aspires to be an organic conglomerate of ministries, agencies and non-profit
organizations who work together, by networking and providing
their respective services, resources and aid to restore lives ruined by crime,
providing the opportunities necessary for reformed and promising offenders to
successfully transition back into their communities as productive, law-abiding
citizens, and promoting a restorative philosophy of justice in public policy,
society and the lives of individuals.
The purpose of the RJN is to provide and facilitate
comprehensive programming and opportunities within the Justice System for the
reform and restoration of offenders, their families and their victims. The
