A message to clients, volunteers, staff and board: As a response to the COVID - 19 and the recommended guidelines:
We continue to accept referrals from the police and crown. All cases will be processed to the best of our ability, using restorative justice practices either by on-line forums, in person forums with physical distancing, or an alternative restorative process that includes victim participation.
Free On-Line Group Parenting of Teens Sessions continue to be offered - see events page for more details and check our Facebook Page.
All Restorative Families programming will be provided as case management needs arise.
The office is closed until further notice. However, staff will continue to reply to phone messages, emails, and continue to work from home as much as possible. Our COVID-19 health and safety plan during a pandemic policy can be found in the Reports and Bylaws, Policies and Procedures section of this web-site.
