Full Circle Restorative Justice received nearly $9,000 in grants and donations to help fund its program.

Executive Director Patty LaTaille said the program was in a “challenging financial situation” prior to receiving the grants and donations.

“This is what’s keeping us viable, along with the support of the county,” LaTaille said. “If we didn’t have these grants, we wouldn’t be able to operate.”

The organization’s recent move from U.S. 50 into the third floor of the Chaffee County Courthouse has also helped with costs.

LaTaille said FCRJ received donations from Moonlight Pizza & Brewpub and Rod Otley and grants from AV Hunter Trust Inc., Monarch Community Outreach and the Town of Buena Vista Support Grant.

They’ve helped to give FCRJ “breathing room” and money to use in the program – which LaTaille said will go toward general operating expenses, staff salary and reintegration of school programs such as peer mediation and anti-bullying.
