Restorative Justice | Catalina Island

The Christian body on Catalina is embarking on an important journey of acknowledgement, accountability and amends in the aftermath of sexual, spiritual, and emotional abuse and its mishandling at Avalon Community Church.
We will be closing our doors to all programming and public gatherings, with the exception of the Tarzana Treatment Center and Food Bank.
During our closure, we will be working in partnership with MinistrySafe and Ampersands Restorative Justice to dedicate our time and resources to survivors.
