RP Welcomes Dixie Howell!
August 29th, 2015
Dixie joined our staff in July of 2015 as the Community Outreach Coordinator. She is responsible for coordinating the community AVP (Alternative to Violence Project) Workshops, assisting with the Thinking for a Change Program and assisting Dona Wilson with the Mentorship program. Dixie’s first experience with Restorative Partners was while she was incarcerated in the Women's Jail serving an 8 year sentence in the SLO County Jail. Once released Dixie continued to volunteer at Restorative Partners' events and was hired through an On-the-Job Training Internship offered by the America Job Center of California. Dixie's life experience inside the system and with her reentry process has been a great gift in deepening our mission to heal and help those impacted by the crime in our county.
