Through restorative justice practices we work with system-involved youth, teachers, policy makers, community members, and other stakeholders to usher peace and reconciliation into our Puget Sound communities.
In November, 2017, King County officials announced a reorganization of the juvenile detention system in order to focus on restoration, dealing with trauma, and healing. Community Passageways is proud to participate in and help lead these efforts. Check out the press coverage in the Seattle Times and The Stranger, or watch the announcement:
At Community Passageways, we have a unique, four-pronged approach to community justice:
Keep youth on a good path. Show them new paths.
Keep people out of the prison system.
Support people already in the prison system.
Ensure a smooth, successful integration into the community.
