About Us


The Washington County Diversion Program (WCDP) is a local non-profit organization that provides a range of restorative justice programs for the communities within Washington County. WCDP addresses unlawful behavior, supports victims of crime and promotes a healthy community. We follow a balanced and restorative justice model that strives to put right the wrongs that have been done and address the needs of all stakeholders, including the victim, the community and those who violated the law, holding the latter accountable in a manner that promotes responsible behavior. 

WCDP runs six separate programs: Court Diversion (adult and youth), the Youth Substance Abuse Safety Program, the Balanced and Restorative Justice  

Crime is a violation of people and relationships. It creates obligations to make things right. Justice involves the offender and the community in a search for solutions which promote repair, reconciliation, and reassurance.
