Technical assistance and direction 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.Under this grant, the National Program Office for the Reclaiming Futures program will provide technical assistance and direction for the following activities: review and score letters of intent, plan and conduct pre-applicant conferences, conduct site visits, plan and conduct National Advisory Committee meetings, select ten sites, plan and conduct judicial advisory committee meetings, provide communities with technical assistance with network development, and provide leadership training for judges.
