VANCOUVER ABORIGINAL TRANSFORMATIVE JUSTICE SERVICES SOCIETY
The Vancouver Aboriginal Transformative Justice Service Society (VATJSS) is a non-profit agency that provides justice, homelessness and outreach prevention services to Aboriginal people within the Metro-Vancouver area.
The justice service provides offenders and victims with satisfying and culturally appropriate alternative to the mainstream criminal justice system. The services are a non-adversarial, non-retributive approach to justice that emphasizes healing in victims, meaningful accountability of offenders, and the involvement of community members in creating a healthier and safer community.
The Aboriginal Homeless Outreach Program assist individuals and families who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless in maintaining or finding housing within the community, also supports formerly homeless people as they face the challenges associated with maintaining their new homes and lives.
