Founded in 1987, Restorative Justice Partners, Inc. (RJP, Inc.) is a non-profit that focuses on a system that promotes healing, responsibility, and restitution. RJP, Inc. brings the victims, offenders, families, and other key stakeholders together in a restorative justice process to help offenders understand the implications of their actions and provide the victim a voice in the restitution. In a restorative justice process, the person who has done harm takes responsibility for his/her actions and the person who has been harmed can take a central role in the process. Restorative processes, which foster dialogue between the offender and the victim, show the highest rates of victim satisfaction, true accountability by the offender,
and reduced recidivism. RJP, Inc. provides a structured environment to develop a restitution plan/agreement.
