  • Making a Difference in Illinois

    TASC is a path to health and recovery for people involved in criminal justice, juvenile justice, child welfare, and public health systems in Illinois. We are independent advocates and case managers for our clients, helping men, women, and adolescents get the right services to meet their needs.

    Working in partnership with government systems and hundreds of community-based service providers across the state, TASC serves 27,000 people annually. Our programs save taxpayer dollars, reduce drug abuse and recidivism, and motivate long-term success.

  • New: National Survey of Diversion Programs

    At a Congressional staff briefing in Washington, the Center for Health and Justice at TASC has released a national survey of criminal justice diversion programs, focusing on their strategies for reducing recidivism, improving health interventions, and achieving public cost savings.

    Diversion programs are critical for reversing the tide of over-incarceration of people with substance and mental health conditions.

Did You Know?

Every year in the U.S., approximately 100,000 youth under the age of 18 leave secure residential facilities, including juvenile facilities, jails and prisons, following adjudication.1  They are more likely to succeed if they have access to services that can help them thrive in a non-institutional environment. Discharge planning, educational and vocational programs, housing assistance, substance abuse and mental health treatment, and life skills training can reduce recidivism and help youth build healthy, productive futures.
