Respect - We intentionally honour and respect every unique story in all of our interactions with individuals, organizations and communities.
Trust - We work hard to establish a sense of trust in everyone we work with by maintaining and following restorative policies.
Humility - We recognize that we can never completely understand the lived experience of another and so we work to create spaces where everyone has an opportunity to share.
Compassion - All our work is driven by compassion, the sincere desire to empathetically understand others.
Inclusivity - We embrace diversity, and strive to create spaces where all voices have the opportunity to be heard.
Collaboration - We believe in authentic partnerships and recognize that safe and vibrant communities exist when we all work together.
Forgiveness - While never an expectation or a requirement, we endeavor to facilitate processes where mistakes are viewed as an opportunity for positive transformation.
These values translate into the following types of approaches: We meet people where they are and aim to deliver what they need; collaborate whenever possible; are a learning organization that strives to be a thought leader in restorative justice best practices by being curious, experimenting and information sharing; we embody a spirit of innovation by acting in a way that recognizes the changing landscape of our communities and the evolving needs of residents, including equity seeking groups.
