Vera announces new role for Family Justice: former spin-off to provide technical assistance as a Vera program
from the news release:
The Vera Institute of Justice announced today that it is integrating the national technical assistance initiatives of Family Justice, an independent nonprofit organization, into its portfolio of work. Operating at Vera as the Family Justice Program, the initiatives will continue to provide training and support to community-based organizations and government agencies in corrections, probation and parole, and juvenile justice.
Family Justice grew out of La Bodega de la Familia, a Vera demonstration project on New York’s Lower East Side that broke new ground in tapping families as a resource in dealing with addiction and involvement in the justice system. Over the years and through strategic partnerships, Family Justice developed tools and methods that extended its services into juvenile and adult facilities across the nation. Family Justice’s approach, drawing on clients’ families as a support network, has resulted in changes such as enhanced visitation policies and the adoption of strength-based case management practices.

We received the following request from Katherine A. Lingle:
Kenosha County Restorative Justice, Inc. (Wis. USA) received a modest grant to set up a virtual office. Potential administrative cost savings are significant. Has anyone done this before and does anyone have any advice? We have a very tech savvy consultant. Suggestions for public/private web site content besides standard forms, corp. docs and contact info???? Potential links?
Having no boundaries works . . . when it comes to volunteer recruitement
I got the wrong number and tried to get the person to become a volunteer.
A man on the treadmill next to me, tried making small talk, I tried to get him to volunteer. Someone came to the office to use the phone. I got him to volunteer. To convert a wrong number to a volunteer, that’s a new one, even for me.
