Community Justice Initiatives (CJI) is a non-profit organization known world-wide for starting the first modern Restorative Justice program.
Restorative Justice is a way of addressing conflict and crime that engages the person who caused the harm, people who were affected by the harm, and the community.
During our 40+ year history, we have continuously responded to community needs by creatively, and innovatively applying restorative justice principles to new problems. We believe the only limit to the power of restorative justice is the capacity of the human heart to change and grow.
We provide conflict resolution services, support for people impacted by sexual trauma, assistance for families involved with child protection, and reintegration support for women and youth returning to the community from prison or custody.
Our restorative justice programs are offered in Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph, and the rest of the Waterloo Region and Wellington County in Ontario, Canada. Through research, speaking opportunities, and written resources our influence is global.

Hospice of Waterloo Region was founded in 1993 by Lucille Mitchell, a local resident who recognized the need for hospice palliative care services in Waterloo Region. Hospice’s core program is our Volunteer Visiting Program. Individuals living with life-threatening illness are matched one on one with a highly trained hospice volunteer who commits to making weekly visits to the client’s home to provide emotional and practical support.
Over the past twenty years that we have served the community, we have been able to expand the scope of our services substantially and now provide hospice palliative care and bereavement support to individuals and their families who are affected by a life threatening illness.
Our mandate from the very beginning is to provide ALL of our services free of charge to the community.
