In an effort to support and promote peer mediation, we are now offering FaciliCase to all school (K - 12) based Peer Mediation Programs for free. We are beginning collaborative efforts with Kids Managing Conflict, school programs, and Universities to demostrate the wide scope of impact demonstrated by peer mediation.
We will release additional details as the program progresses.
Contact us for more information and to get started.
In the New Restorative Justice interface agreements can be logged by specific agreement items and by person. Below are details on the various aspects of logging agreement on the new interface.
Agreements are made for those participants in the ‘Offender’ section. An agreement can be created for each offender and each responsible party will have their own separate agreement. Agreements have two yes/no options for completion and monitored. Also when created a description can be written in a free text box and a completion date can be added.
After an agreement is created specific items can be added. There are three default options: Apology, Restitution and Community Service. The Other Item option contains a few default options, and these can be customized for specific needs upon set up. Some of these options can be connected to specific victims if there are multiple. The restitution option also tracks payments toward the total amount owed. The four options are shown below.
It is possible to make multiple agreements for any offender if during the process the circle reconvenes or multiple contracts are formed.

FaciliCase now includes a new suite of enhancements and a new UI to support Restorative Justice cases.
The new user interface allows you to enter victims, offenders, third parties, meetings, agreements, etc in one place. Its design prevents you from having to change pages when entering a case. You can view anything related to the case on one screen.
This screen includes almost all of our existing features such as task tracking, billing, full case audit, communications generation and tracking, etc.
Most restorative justice cases originate by an offense that must be tracked. Every offender can have an unlimited number of offenses which include the following properties.
1) Offense Type (Weapon, Property, etc)
2) Offense Level (Petty, Class 1 felony, etc)
3) Offense Date
4) Juvenile Status
5) Closure Date
7) Attachments (unlimited)
8) Reference Numbers (e.g. case numbers)
9) Private Notes (unlimited)
A goal of restorative justice is preventing future offenses and helping the offender improve their life. An unlimited amount of recidivism checks can be assigned for any offender. These will display on an optional front page module or report. The reports show different cases based on the user's role and relationship to cases.
Part of repairing harm involves apologizing, repairing issues relating to the offense, paying restitution or performing community service. Each case can have an unlimited number of agreements which can be used to track the following items:
2) Resitution, payments and calculated amount remaining
3) Community service
4) Other items
It’s official, we are finally moved into our new office space! In January we moved into a temporary space in the Clear Creek Office Building while they built our new space down the hall. Of course, the build out took longer than expected but it was worth the wait.
Although most of our work is done remotely via phone, video conference and email we are excited that our new space has a couple of conference rooms and a training room.
If you’re in town, make plans to come see us! Schedule a meeting so we can sit down and talk about how things are going and make sure you’re getting the most out of your experience with FaciliCase (no, we won’t charge you for the time). We can have coffee by the creek or enjoy the view from our 5th floor training room while we chat.

In some potential situations you might need to prove that you kept your data safe. For this reason we've implemented full case auditing. We not only say that your information is secure. We prove it. You can see who has edited and viewed your case data.
Our applications are housed in secure data centers. Our databases are stored on secure networks with finely controlled access lists. The application utilizes security frameworks which explicitly control access based on authorization. All measures have been taken to guarantee your information is secure.
