We believe that justice is human.
It is a living system of accountability, correction and growth that must work for the communities and individuals it touches. We believe that when our responses to crime are truly effective, they cost society less and provide us with more. When they are just, they create safer communities. And when they are humane, they reflect the potential everyone has for a better future.
We work for the people affected by the justice system.
Through evidence-based programs focused on prevention, intervention and re-integration, we build better futures for individuals and safer communities for all. We help youth develop the critical life skills that will let them achieve their full
potential and avoid future justice involvement. We support families with counseling and resources to help them navigate the challenges of criminal justice. For those leaving incarceration, we provide housing and training to help them find a job, reintegrate into their community and reduce their risk of re-offense. Our Centre of Research & Policy connects front-line service providers with innovative analysis to translate research into action.
Whether with policy or programming, advocacy or service delivery, we strive for human justice in Ontario.
In partnership with the community to make Peterborough safer through prevention, education, reform, aftercare and treatment services for persons who are, or who have the potential to be involved in the Criminal Justice System.
