Communications activities for RWJF's Reclaiming Futures program

The Foundation's program, Reclaiming Futures: Communities Helping Teens Overcome Drugs, Alcohol, and Crime, was designed to: (1) develop new service delivery models that integrate comprehensive services into the juvenile justice system and promote the creation of community-based systems of care for substance-abusing youthful offenders; and (2) foster the development of local judicial leadership to guide juvenile justice and substance abuse treatment partnerships, and assist community-based treatment providers in assessing their effectiveness.The purpose of this project is to develop new service delivery models that integrate comprehensive services into the juvenile justice system and promote the creation of community-based systems of care for substance-abusing youthful offenders. As part of the program's communications campaign, this grant provides support for editorial services, workshop speakers, publications, public relations services, media monitoring, Web maintenance, and online library software. The purpose of these activities is to increase community understanding and support for teens overcoming drugs, alcohol, and crime, and to change attitudes among targeted audiences about these young people.
