Through a different lens…

What happened?

Who was hurt?

Who is responsible?

What needs to be done to make it right?

Different questions—new answers

Rooted in practices long used by indigenous cultures to acknowledge, heal and repair destructive conflict, RESTORE provides creative, safe and appropriate opportunities for harmed and harm-doer to discuss directly the human consequences of what has occurred,  address issues of safety and accountability, and help parties begin the process of moving forward.

RESTORE has been providing restorative justice services in the area for nearly 20 years, formerly under the name Victim-Offender Reconciliation Program (VORP) of Southeastern South Dakota. Our goal is to bring peaceful solutions to those in conflict, and to educate and make our communities safer, healthier, places to live.
