“I never realized a candle of hope was
not intended to overpower the darkness,
but rather be a sign the darkness
would not overpower me.”
-Richard Mejico, a former inmate
who served a life sentence in prison
The Office of Restorative Justice reaches out to the incarcerated, victims, and the families of both.
Our staff advocates for changes in the criminal justice system on the County, State and Federal levels, and strives to educate the community about the system
and its affect on those involved in it.
Our staff is made up of lay people, religious, and clergy who work together to provide our community services including pastoral care, a resettlement program, and healing masses.
