Sycamore Tree (Victim-Offender Reconciliation)

Sycamore Tree (Victim-Offender Reconciliation)

Sycamore Tree Program is a restorative justice program offering those who have caused harm to others through crime and those who have been harmed to gain a joint understanding of the impact of crime and proceed along the pathway to healing and transformation.

It takes its name from the story of Zacchaeus and his encounter with Jesus (Luke 19:1-10).  Trained PFC volunteers facilitate discussions aimed at creating a safe environment for people to share their stories of crime, and its impact, and build and common understanding to move forward.

*This program is currently being adapted to be implemented in Canada.
