Welcome Reclaiming Futures Duval County, Florida
By Susan Richardson, April 25 2013
Last week I had the honor of visiting one of our new Reclaiming Futures sites, Duval County Reclaiming Futures, in Jacksonville, Florida.
Led by the Honorable Judge Henry E. Davis, treatment and court staff closely monitor teens to help them break the cycle of drugs, alcohol and crime.
The team is working to keep kids in school, in their homes and out of juvenile justice facilities by implementing the following practices:
- Enhancing and improving access to substance abuse and mental health treatment services for Reclaiming Futures participants and their families.
- Implementing a comprehensive system of care incorporating various community-based services for families involved in Reclaiming Futures.
- Inspiring the Duval County community to become involved with youth and families in need.
