We want to honor all our incredible Volunteer Facilitators and Board, Community Partners, and present and past donors and contributors for all you've done to make us what we are today: a program growing fast and strong!
Some highlights of 2017 include:

  • Work with Municipal and District Courts
  • Significant Increases in Youth and Adults served
  • Provision of services in Chaffee County Schools
  • Extremely low recidivism (re-offense rate) (9.2%) for Colorado RJ programs including FCRJ
  • Growing Therapy Dog Services and increase in team members
  • Production of Therapy Dogs & RJ Webinar featuring over 100 attendees nationwide
  • Direct Police Referrals
  • And much's a benchmark year!

In our growing work with local businesses, clients are discovering the power we offer in giving victims and managers back a voice in how harm and crime are repaired.

One of our honored partners, Mr. Fernando Garcia, Regional Assets Manager of Safeway, Inc, has this to say about FCRJ:

Restorative Justice Ven Diagram

"Your program not only makes sure that there is justice for the victim but also for the perpetrator. Your program brings communities together and helps them understand the importance of living in what I would like to call harmony.The fact that you bring victims to the table and allow them the opportunity to verbally share their losses, their damages and their emotions is of utmost importance to everyone in the room. Lastly and to me this is vital, the education that everyone in that room receives is beneficial for the community  as a whole. The sharing and learning from both parties opens eyes for all of us not only for the victim and the perpetrator but for everyone. It has been an honor and a pleasure to have met you all. Keep up the great work."

May you and yours have a wonderful 2018!
