Submit a Referral
If you are not sure what session is appropriate, please contact the Restorative Justice Center. You can send the referral documents and indicate that you would like staff to screen the individual for services. We will get back to you with our recommendation.
Upon receiving your referral, SCVRJ staff will schedule individuals into the next available session. We recommend that referred individuals contact the Restorative Justice Center directly to ensure that their session works with their schedule. Our sessions are posted on our online calendar for convenience. All sessions require pre-registration except the Victim Impact Panel. Please do not assign individuals to attend a specific session without pre-registering with SCVRJ staff.
SCV Restorative Justice policy makes it a priority to schedule individuals into our standard sessions within 60 days. Timelines may be extended due to client schedules, screening, sentencing or university schedules. Conferencing cases may have a longer projection as they are handled on a case-by-case basis but are held on the standard priority level.
Please indicate deadlines on the referral form. Our staff will do our best to work with the individual to complete their session in a timely manner.
If there are questions about a referral or session, contact the Restorative Justice Center. Our staff are always happy to help with questions.
