The Central Virginia Community Justice fosters safety and healing for individuals and communities by diverting criminal cases away from the court system and into facilitated restorative conversations.


Our purpose is to promote public safety through a community-based, public health, trauma informed, and healing-centered approach; to address personal and systemic root causes of criminal behavior; to reduce overall contact with the criminal system and racially-disproportionate contact; and to transform the culture of the agencies, organizations, and communities involved.
