PROGRAMS:

Mediation Services
Mediation and conflict resolution services for individuals, families, friends, neighbours, organized sports, schools, groups, organizations, and the justice system.

Revive
Revive provides supportive services to women and men who are healing from sexual harm.  This includes support for survivors of sexual trauma, support for people who have offended sexually to make safe healing choices, and intimate partners of both.  Facilitated Dialogues provide support for families and groups in which sexual abuse has occurred.

Stride
Stride of CJI assists women serving a federal prison sentence (FSW) to make the difficult, often traumatic transition from prison into the community by engaging and involving community volunteers.  Employing principles of restorative justice, the program focuses on building on the strengths of the women and creating safer and supportive communities to receive them in their transition from prison.  This process facilitates changes in the women’s options and the subsequent choices they make.

Family Centred Programs
A culturally-sensitive process that gives the extended family and friends of children at-risk an opportunity to collaboratively develop a plan of care focused on the best interest and safety of the children.

BackHome
BackHome, modeled after our Stride program, is designed to assist youth with the reintegration process after a period of custody.  Using recreational programming, BackHome connects the youth with volunteer mentors who support their transition back into the community.
