Three more communities will be implementing the Reclaiming Futures model, thanks to $4.1 million in funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). That brings the number of Reclaiming Futures communities to 29 in 17 states.
Each of the grantees will be implementing the model over four years in a juvenile drug court, with the aim of reducing substance abuse among youth in the juvenile justice system:
- Hardin County, OH - Hardin Partnership to Aid Community Teens (Hardin PACT).
- Snohomish County, WA - Re-Enter, Re-Engage, Re-Claim (R3).
- Travis County, TX - Travis County Juvenile Probation Department.
Congratulations! We look forward to working with them.
