Reclaiming Futures: Communities Helping Teens Overcome Drugs, Alcohol and Crime: Multnomah County, Ore.

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 supports Reclaiming Futures Oregon to sustain the implementation of the Reclaiming Futures (RF) model. The Reclaiming Futures Oregon site will use this grant to launch a statewide RF initiative in Oregon, to be called Reclaiming Futures Oregon. This will likely be a two phase project. The purpose of this project is to invest the next 20 months in: (1) institutionalizing RF -- Multnomah Embrace, which is the local, county Reclaiming Futures effort; (2) laying groundwork for launching the initiative statewide by securing input and support from key state partners; (3) launching state-level and/or county-level planning, as appropriate, for implementation; and (4) obtaining funding for the initiative from additional sources.
