RADIUS is an innovative effort that
blends the philosophies of restorative
justice with the best practices of gender-
responsive programming for girls
under 18. Restorative services are
provided to girls while they are in residential
placement, during their transition
and furlough, and after release.
The two key components of the program
are restorative justice circles
and grief and trauma counseling. (excerpt)
