Restorative Justice for Adults and Juveniles

SVdP’s Restorative Justice Ministry works to heal both the victim and offender in order to regain the trust of the community. Victims and their families are supported. SVdP’s Restorative Justice Chaplain and volunteers offer pastoral care to incarcerated men, women, and youth.

SVdP’s Catherine Center is a residential safe home for women recently released from incarceration. Women receive support for their practical needs and emotional and spiritual growth. SVdP walks with those who have caused harm to help them acknowledge the impact of what they have done and to assist reconciliation.

SVdP supports victims and their families during very difficult times, praying at murder sites and visiting them in their homes.

Victims or victims’ families in need of pastoral assistance – please contact SVdP’s Restorative Justice Head Chaplain, Martin Schurr at mschurr@svdpsm.org.

Victims or victims’ families in need of material support such as shelter, rent, utilities, food, clothing please call SVdP’s PFRC Help Line at (650) 343-4403.
