Meet the Hosts

Lakes Area Restorative Justice Project is an approach to justice which involves the victimes, the offender and the involved community. It is a diversion program away from the traditional court systems, designed to give a 'second chance' to the offender and a 'voice' to the victim. 

Bridges of Hope has built a strong community support system that provides Resource Connections Services to their neighbors in the Brainerd Lakes Area. Recently they have added Operation Sandwich and the Community Overnight Shelter, programs that offer immediate assistance to those who need it most.

Business After Hours will be held in a tent behind the building located on S. 7th Street. There will be minimal parking in their parking lot near the tent. Street parking on both sides is available. Parking at the shelter is also available.
