Huronia Restorative Justice Project
FACE Office is at 317 Midland Ave, Midland, ON; various locations (if required)
Trained volunteers facilitate community justice circles between victims and their offenders. The facilitator, along with a co-facilitator, will receive a case referral with all pertinent information. Cases may be referred from youth criminal court or adult criminal court, by the police. Cases may also be referred by a school. A FACE facilitator will then set up an interview time with the victim to discuss the procedures, answer any questions, and find out who they will be bringing for support. The same is done with the offender. A date is set and then the circle is prepared. Everyone attending the circle gives their input into designing an agreement for the offender to follow. A member of the circle offers to track the agreement and its completion. In many cases, if the agreement is fulfilled, the court may decide that criminal charges will be dropped. Victims have a chance to share their feelings and impact of the incident, which is often not possible in court. Offenders hear the impact their choices made firsthand. All parties end up with a better understanding of the incident, and of each other.
