Relationships form the heart of community.
When those relationships are based on respect and understanding, everyone benefits. 
Estes Valley Restorative Justice Partnership (EVRJP) helps build and repair relationships -- whether working to repair the harm of a crime, bringing parties together to work out sustainable solutions, or providing proactive support to build community connections and promote positive decision-making.
EVRJP is restoring community one relationship at a time.
