Restorative Justice Ministry

MISSION STATEMENT
We provide people affected by crime, victims and offenders within our communities support to heal through prayer, prevention, intervention, and guidance. We believe that peace and justice are attainable when both parties receive the services needed to heal and advance themselves within our society.

We advocate for justice and promote peace as we serve…

DECLARACIÓN DE NUESTRA MISIÓN
Proporcionamos a las personas afectadas por el delito, las víctimas y los delincuentes  apoyo dentro de nuestras comunidades para que se restauren mediante la oración, la intervención, la orientación y la prevención. Creemos que la paz y la justicia son alcanzables cuando ambas partes reciben los servicios necesarios para sanar y avanzar dentro de nuestra sociedad.
