Youth and Family Programs
At TASC, we understand that involvement
in juvenile justice and child welfare systems increases the likelihood of later
involvement in the criminal justice system. We help improve success for both
youth and parents by advocating for them in these systems.
Offering intensive case management
services, we work with youth who are struggling in school and at home, and with
parents who have substance use disorders. In this way, we not only help stop
generational cycles of justice involvement, but we give families the skills and
tools to live together in positive, healthy ways.
