Why Choose Us?
E.P.I.D.E.M.E.K is a non-profit organization dedicated to equality and restoring justice for those who are at a disadvantage. We work with the community in bridging the gap between ex-offenders, families, victims, and the community at large.
We believe that the pain and healing are a share phenomenon. Restorative justice is an approach to justice that focuses on the needs of the offenders as well as the involved community. Our goal is to revolutionize the way people in community obtain justice in its truest form. Holding not only the offender accountable but holding the justice system equally accountable.
In starting at the core by utilizing all the components of restorative justice. Where the offenders are being held accountable for their action. This includes not only the admittance of the harm they caused others but also make amends within the community. We believe in a transformational change as opposed to behavior modification.
We work hand in hand with The National Civil Rights and Social Justice Speakers training Bureau, Gladden Community House, we work with multiple elementary schools and other outreach programs in the community, such as Healing Hearts, Power for Change ministries, and the Welcome Home Foundation
Our goal is to implement ways to address all the needs to the renewed citizen to prevent a re-offense of another crime. To be a circle of support not just for the renewed citizen but for the families, victims and those in the community affected by the crime.
