This chapter explores the role of the community in restorative justice. It provides multiple examples of ways in which community-based organizations and systems have failed offenders and their family members. Specifically explored are: child protective and interpersonal violence services; mental health and drug and alcohol treatment; schools; juvenile justice; and faith communities. Toward remediating the harm caused by a broken system, or to stem systems that continue to fail, the chapter offers several examples of community-based restorative responses. The goal of these responses is to support the development of caring communities that are proactive in preventing crime by addressing systems failure and inequality.

Keywords:   structural inequality, child protective services, restorative justice, prison, community-based organizations
