Youth and Family Programs

At TASC, we understand that involvement in juvenile justice and child welfare systems increases the likelihood of later involvement in the criminal justice system. We help improve success for both youth and parents by advocating for them in these systems.

Offering intensive case management services, we work with youth who are struggling in school and at home, and with parents who have substance use disorders. In this way, we not only help stop generational cycles of justice involvement, but we give families the skills and tools to live together in positive, healthy ways.
