Promoting safe and resilient communities through a broad continuum of services that prevent crime, reduce poverty, build self-sufficiency, and foster inclusion.
Project ReSet is a service dedicated to preventing and addressing the negative impact of social polarization in the community. We supports individuals and families who are dealing with the challenges of hate-motivated violence or seeking early prevention support.
We provide tailored wraparound support. Our approach is participant-centred, and so, the needs, strengths, and goals of the participant guide us.
ReSet is powered by the John Howard Society of Ottawa, a
not-for-profit, charitable organization committed to providing a broad
range of evidence-based and outcome-driven community services throughout
We believe in addressing communities’ needs by cooperating and collaborating to achieve a healthy and safe society.
We believe that the root causes of crime are found within communities and that the solutions to crime are also found within communities.
We believe that individuals are responsible for their own actions and must be held accountable for those actions.
We believe that all individuals have the right to live in a safe and peaceful society, and that justice is best served through measures that resolve conflict and promote the reparation of harm.
We believe in the potential of all human beings and in their capacity for growth and change.
We believe that every individual has intrinsic worth and has the right to be treated with dignity and respect.
