Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $775,775)
The Second Chance Act Youth Offender Reentry Program supports states, local governments, and tribal governments in partnership with interested persons (including Federal corrections and supervision agencies), service providers, and nonprofit organizations to provide comprehensive reentry services for moderate to high-risk youthful offenders before, during, and after release from confinement.
Lucas County Juvenile Court proposes a realignment of referral requirements to the Community Treatment Center (CTC) to improve services and balance traditional probation responses with extended incarceration. CTC is a cognitive behavioral treatment program designed for justice-involved youth who present a high risk to public safety and demonstrate a high need for interventions that target pro-criminal attitudes, values, and beliefs. The program will engage moderate to high-risk youth, ages 1417, who are reentering the community after confinement. The reentry plan will address criminogenic influences and mental health, substance abuse treatment, housing, education, family engagement, and workforce development. CA/NCF
