To promote alternative conflict resolution in our community.  We hope to bring restorative dialogue and practices as an option to Rice County in hopes to prevent the immersion of further contact with the justice system; we hope to foster a more holistic approach to justice, building and when necessary re-building relationships to promote an atmosphere that holds individuals responsible for their actions and fosters healthy communication.

How much does it cost?

We are fortunate to have a grant through the Rice County Attorney’s Office and JDAI for all residents and workers of Rice County. If you live or work in Rice County, there is no fee.  If you do not live or work in Rice County, the fee for the four days of training is $500.
