Restorative Community Foundation is a new non-profit organization whose mission is to
help communities develop a strategic community plan for restorative practices, see that
key community leaders are trained and supported in their efforts to transition existing
services or establish needed services to support the hope and healing potentials of
restorative justice/practices. Our current efforts are with the Charlottesville/Albemarle
community, which we hope will be successful enough to be used by other cities as a
model for their own planning. (excerpt)
