    • Restorative Justice Services

      CDR has decades of experience with youth and adult restorative justice.

      Restorative justice guides people who commit harms to take a full and active form of accountability.  At the same time, it takes seriously the needs of victims and their right to have a strong voice in how the harm is repaired.  Schools, courts, and workplaces are increasingly training their teams in these values and tools.

      Schools

      CDR supports the growing movement in education for more holistic, equitable, relationship-based discipline structures.  We assist educators and administrators in cultivating meaningful, growth-oriented accountability in their schools through professional development trainings, sustained coaching of specific school personnel, systems consultation, and facilitation of restorative discipline dialogues.

       

      Criminal Justice

      In partnership with the Office of the Lane County District Attorney, CDR runs a Restorative Justice Diversion Program.  Defendants who plead into this program go through a series of dialogues to collaboratively explore what full accountability means for their situation, where the impacts have been, and what can be done towards making things right.  This program has an excellent track record of diverting individuals away from sentencing and toward meaningful community integration.  

       

      Community

      Residents of Lane County may initiate a case with CDR for a Restorative process to address a specific harm. Our trained, experienced facilitators conduct individual meetings with the person harmed and the person or people who caused the harm.  We uncover impacts and needs, and determine whether to convene a dialogue between the parties.  These cases have some resemblance to mediations, but the goals are authentic rebalancing of relationships, humanizing the “other,” and seeking to address real impacts.

Nonprofit Work Teams Project

The Nonprofit Work Teams project has developed in response to the Covid-19 crisis.

If you’re a nonprofit in Lane County and need project assistance, you can use the form below under the tab “Post a Project.”  You’re project will be added to the “Nonprofit Projects,” list.
