Our Mission

Reclaiming Futures helps young people in trouble with drugs, alcohol, and crime. The initiative began in 2001, with $21 million from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) for 10 pilot sites to create a six-step model that promotes new standards of care and opportunities in juvenile justice.

In 37 communities across the nation, Reclaiming Futures has received investments to spread its model from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust (KBR) and The Duke Endowment. The national office of Reclaiming Futures is housed in the Regional Research Institute, School of Social Work at Portland State University.
