Atlanta, GA, 30303

Description
The community service program has been expanded to seven days a week for those persons needing community service hours. This service is offered to probationers coming through both Community Court and Municipal Court. Through community service, the offender gives something back to the community as an alternative to incarceration. The goals of the Community Service Program are to: provide appropriate alternative sentencing; avoid the high cost of incarceration; provide an educational tool which allows offenders to derive a positive experience through service to the community; and reconnect offenders with local residents through positive work projects. (from web site) Born at the suggestion of the Regional Homelessness Commission in 2003, the purpose of the Restorative Justice Center, Inc. (RJC) is to raise funds and awareness for the programs of the Atlanta Community Court. The RJC will provide funding streams and grant assistance for many of the existing court programs and help develop others, and will also manage existing grants. (from web site)
