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.This grant provides support for editorial services, workshop speakers, publications, public relations services, media monitoring, Web maintenance, and online library software. The purpose of this project is to: (1) increase understanding and support of teens overcoming drugs, alcohol, and crime; (2) broaden attitudes among targeted audiences; and (3) motivate local interests supporting efforts to engage young people benefiting from Reclaiming Futures.
