Evan Elkin, Director, Department of Planning and Government Innovation at the Vera Institute of Justice, discusses the success and longevity of Nassau County Reclaiming Futures, despite the decimation of county and local budgets over the past three years in New York.
The work goes on because the team pulls togther tightly and reinvents itself around the model.
Evan recently joined two of his Vera colleagues, Annie Salsich, and Jennifer Fratello, in a webinar sponsored by Reclaiming Futures that addressed the issues affecting policy and practice in juvenile justice. The audio recording and slides can be accessed at www.reclaimingfutures.org
