Technical assistance and direction for RWJF's Reclaiming Futures: Communities Helping Teens Overcome Drugs, Alcohol and Crime 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 continued support for technical assistance and direction for the Reclaiming Futures national program. Under this initiative, 23 communities are implementing the Reclaiming Futures model to improve services for youth involved in the juvenile justice system. The national program office will provide direct technical assistance and coaching to each site; develop and conduct webinars on the Reclaiming Futures model; and host fellowship meetings for all involved communities.
