Healing Beyond Harm is a restorative justice pilot project launched in partnership with municipal agencies and the community that aims to restore the safety and empowerment of people who were harmed and the people who caused the harm.

Healing Beyond Harm involves two trauma-informed restorative elements designed to support healing and learning after harm has occurred.

  1. Healing Dialogues
  2. Apology Letter Bank
