The Foundation's Local Initiative Funding Partners Program is a matching grants program designed to establish partnerships between the Foundation and local grantmakers in support of innovative, community-based projects that improve health and health care for underserved and vulnerable populations.Juvenile offenders on probation or parole reenter the community with multiple referrals to education, family counseling, substance abuse treatment, mental health care, gang intervention and other services. But an effective reentry requires a collaborative team approach, community and family involvement, sustained client follow-up and effective coordination across participating agencies. Using an evidence-based approach, this new community reentry team will work with the youth and his/her family and probation or parole officer to tailor services to assure that the individualized plan for each youth is completed. Local funders include the Nicholson Foundation.
