Utilizing the principles and practices of restorative justice, St. Croix Valley Restorative Justice works with victims, offenders and communities to respond to the effects of crime and conflict. Our evidenced-based curriculum both educates and builds accountability, decreasing recidivism rates and increasing the health and safety within our community.
St. Croix Valley Restorative Justice is a 501c3 non-profit founded in 2001. Our organization works in partnership with, but independently of, the criminal justice and human-service systems in St. Croix and Pierce Counties. We provide a variety of referral-based services that each of our partner agencies use to address the needs of victims, offenders and the greater community for a number of criminal offenses, with a focus on accountability and positive behavior change.
SCV Restorative Justice offers victim-centric restorative services to address how crime affects our youth, families and community. Our model focuses on prevention, intervention and reintegration. Restorative processes give crime victims an opportunity to participate and have a voice in the justice process. Community members and stakeholders are involved in the process of holding youth and offenders accountable. Services engage all parties in the process.
