About Micah Mission

The Micah Mission (Micah) is an ecumenical, volunteer based, organization serving the city of Saskatoon and surrounding communities. Guided by the principles of restorative justice, Micah is motivated to create a world where individuals and communities are restored to caring and respectful relationships in the wake of harm from crime. Our mission is to transform the lives of incarcerated individuals, formerly incarcerated individuals, and their families. We do this by being “tough on crime one friendship at a time”. How is friendship being tough on crime? It is a vital part of community restoration, and offers individuals who cause harm an opportunity to understand the harm they have caused and develop plans to take appropriate responsibility by valuing personal change, accountability, and encouraging collaboration and reintegration rather than coercion and isolation.

What is Restorative Justice?

Restorative justice is a framework for addressing and preventing harm. Restorative justice is an approach to achieving justice that involves, to the extent possible, those who have a stake in a specific offense or harm to collectively identify and address harms, needs, and obligations in order to heal and put things as right as possible. – Howard Zehr, The Little Book of Restorative Justice  

Our Impact

Through support and accountability, and education and action we help those who have been impacted by crime. We offer 6 programs, both in the community and in local provincial and federal correctional institutions, that allow us to:

  • Visit incarcerated individuals.
  • Assist recently released individuals.
  • Support individuals to learn and change.
  • Teach others about Restorative Justice.
  • Make connections between faith communities and people leaving correctional institutions.

Our 50 plus volunteers donate approximately 5334 hours per year and support over 100 individuals who have been impacted by crime. Working towards a world where there are no more victims of harm we help program participants to:

  • Recognize the impacts of past offenses and harmful behaviours;
  • Exercise positive, healthy relating, and constructive decision making;
  • Decrease social isolation and reconnect with the wider community;
  • Recognize their strengths, and develop new skills and self-understanding;
  • Break cycles of offending and commit to living a crime-free life.

Ultimately offering justice to survivors, healing for harm-doers, and helping to ensure there are no more victims.
