What we do
Reedley Peace Building Initiative
West Coast MCC’s restorative justice initiative contributes to the development of more peaceful, just and healthy communities in Fresno County. WCMCC does this by restoring relationships between victims and (primarily) juvenile offenders, preventing offenders from committing further crimes, and by promoting community involvement through a restorative justice method. Working with and through the Reedley Police Department, we connect community-based groups, service providers and public institutions such as schools, to educate people about resources and to support them to bring change to their communities. We also provide direct mediation services as needed. In addition to connecting people with the resources they need to build a more peaceful community, WCMCC also facilitates learning that enable people to take over training processes of their own.
Victim Service Collaborative
West Coast MCC’s Victim Service Collaborative (VSC) serves as an intentional gathering of agencies from Fresno County that provides direct services to victims of crime and their families. The VSC serves as a partnership of shared resources for immediate and ongoing support to victims of crime. The Collaborative strives to provide the victim and family with the most appropriate referrals and services available. In an effort to quickly connect victims and families with services, the collaborative meets monthly to inform providers of current services. Shared agency training is a vital part of the Victim Service Collaborative that facilitates members remaining current on best practices in laws affecting victims.
