About OCRJC

The Orange County Restorative Justice Center (OCRJC) was incorporated in 1981.

The OCRJC Mission is to be a major catalyst in Orange County for building and advocating for a just community by: using restorative programs to address legal issues, wrongdoing, conflict and the needs of harmed parties; and streamlining access to services that improve the health, well-being and positive behavior of individuals and the community.

The OCRJC Vision is that the everyday life in Orange County communities is safe, just and provides opportunities for all people to thrive.

The OCRJC adopted the goals of the Vermont Restorative Justice Programs’ Position on Racial Justice (click here to read) which include commitments to anti-racism training and ongoing examination of our policies and practices so we “work in ways that are inclusive and equitable, respect the dignity of all and build relationships rooted in justice and respect.” 

Programs offered by OCRJC include:

OCRJC is governed by a Board of Trustees that typically has five to seven members.
