support restorative partners

Restorative Partners is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that serves San Luis Obispo County. Our mission is to transform lives impacted by crime through healing services and relationships. We do so through facilitating programs in our local juvenile hall, through our 5 sober living homes, drug and alcohol counseling, treatment, reentry programming, restorative justice conferencing, and through other community services and educational efforts. 

While the focus of the 3rd annual SLO Grilled Cheese Festival is to support local restaurants, this event is also in support of Restorative Partners. It is one of three major fundraisers we host annually to fund our operations. These fundraisers allow us to continue serving the vulnerable population we joyfully serve and the greater San Luis Obispo County community.


We are in need of raising $80,000 to continue operations. We would be honored if you partnered with us to support our work!!
