Thanks to everyone who helped us raise more than $10,000 on November 20th!
With volunteers and supporters like you, the Center for Community Peacemaking has been creating a culture of peace in Lancaster and beyond through restorative justice practices like:

  • Victim-Offender Conferencing brings together those harmed by crime with those who offended to "make things right." The vast majority of former victims and offenders report high satisfaction.
  • Making Peace offers youth and their parents an opportunity to practice healthy communication with their peers and each other.
  • Peacemaking Circles help to transform conflict and address harm for large and small groups in the community building on the group's common values.
  • Accountability Circles increase community safety through the volunteer mentoring of former offenders meeting regularly for support and accountability.
Through face-to-face dialogue and direct accountability, a deeper justice is served. It's a justice that restores relationships and our community. Restorative justice empowers "victims" and "offenders" to become change agents who can make our communities genuinely safer.
We welcome your participation as a volunteer, friend and supporter of this transformative work.
