Juvenile Justice

TASC has worked to strengthen the quality of life for youth, families, and communities for many years. A primary aim of the organization’s youth programming is to develop developmentally appropriate solutions that guide youth toward positive, safe, healthy, and pro-social behavior in collaboration with system partners.

 

Youth: Alternatives to Detention

TASC works with youth involved in the justice system who may require substance use interventions. Staff conduct assessments, make linkages to services, provide ongoing case management, advocate for youth and their families, and report progress to the referring systems.

In FY15, we served 2,013 boys and girls in our Alternatives to Detention programs.

Youth: Detention and Community Reentry

Under the leadership of the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice, TASC has provided reentry case management services to young parolees across Illinois to support their return from institutions back into their communities since 2006. Working with Illinois Youth Centers, TASC helps youth transition back to school and links them to other community-based services such as substance use treatment, mental health services, housing support, job training, emergency food and shelter, primary healthcare, and transportation.

In FY15, we served 382 youth in our Detention and Community Reentry programs.
