Providing positive social support to those in the justice system.
Parkland Restorative Justice is a community organization in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
We are thankful to live and work on Treaty Six Territory and the Homeland of the Metis. We give honor and pay respect to the First Nations and Metis ancestors of this place and affirm our relationship with one another.
We believe that positive social support is a basic need of all people and a powerful healing tool for change. For over 40 years our programs have reached those in the justice system by connecting volunteers with those who are incarcerated or recently released.
We offer different programs with varying levels of commitments.
Volunteers receive comprehensive training and support by staff. By walking with those in our justice system, our volunteers are helping to prevent further harm and demonstrating that no one is disposable.
Join us in building safer communities.
Our prison visitation program matches volunteers with male inmates at the Saskatchewan Penitentiary. These visits provide the inmate with positive social support that can help build integrity in their lives and lessen feelings of isolation.
The Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) program exemplifies the belief that “No One is Disposable” and creates community safety by maintaining the goal of “No More Victims” by creating teams of supportive volunteers to walk alongside recently released inmates.
We welcome all dads affected by incarceration. We will be working with them to keep them connected to their kids, to help them feel better about themselves, to cope with prison, and to strengthen the family unit for reintegration success.
YOUR NEXT STEP:
