Circle of Support

Circles of Support are based on restorative justice principles. Each circle has a team of 3-5 community members who receive training and support from professionals. The circle meets regularly to facilitate the transitioning member’s practical needs, to provide emotional support, to challenge the behaviors and attitudes, to develop constructive and pro-social strategies to address everyday problems. Circles of Support will:

  • Support good behaviors and decision making
  • Offer accountability and social support
  • Mentor and coach (as a group)
  • Build and promote healthy relationships
  • Identify barriers and plan for success

The Benefits of Circles of Support are:

Mission Statement

You Have The Power's mission is to prevent and heal harm.

Description

"Restorative justice emphasizes repairing the harm caused by crime. When victims, offenders and community members meet to decide how to do that, the results can be transformational. Restorative Justice.org

Restorative justice has many applications in criminal justice, schools and the community which all address the harms, conflicts, and trauma we experience. The goal, regardless of the application, is to restore people through courageous dialogue.

We do this with restorative justice practices, community education, consulting, and coaching.
