Heavenly Grace was the first baby born at Freedom House Southeastern Kentucky. Thanks to her mom’s courageous decision to come to Freedom House, she was the first of many babies to be born healthy with Volunteers of America.

Healing and accountability that brings people together

Today, as police and criminal justice reform dominates our thoughts about how we build a more equitable society, many of us are asking: what can we do to create effective and meaningful change?

At Volunteers of America, we know a vital part of that answer: Restorative Justice. Restorative Justice is a groundbreaking program that works to keep young people out of the criminal justice system.

When a crime is committed, Restorative Justice begins a process designed to give young people hope and opportunity – while supporting the victims of crimes. Instead of asking “who should be punished,” Restorative Justice asks “how can we make amends.” Through meetings led by trained
facilitators, those accused of crimes meet with victims of crimes to find a solution agreeable to everyone. These solutions often include restitution, community service and education. The process is entirely voluntary – and extremely effective.

I just surrendered everything and the next thing I knew, two months later and I had enrolled in school, I have custody of three of my four kids and everything is just falling into place for me because of being here and going through the program. I owe my life to this place.
