SEE HOW

  • TASC Public Policy Priorities

    1. Shrink the justice system by diverting eligible people away from prosecution and incarceration and into community-based services, as soon as appropriate.

    2. Create pathways for successful reentry after justice involvement.  

    3. Promote evidence-based strategies in substance use and mental health disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery.

    4. Expand community capacity to treat mental health and substance use disorders, adapting to changing environments. Learn more.

  • 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. 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 Illinois, we serve over 27,000 people annually. Our programs save taxpayer dollars, reduce drug abuse and recidivism, and motivate long-term success.

  • Reducing Incarceration and Improving Health

    Through our Center for Health and Justice, TASC provides consulting, training, and public policy strategy across the United States. 

    Leveraging our direct service experience, we help states and justice systems reduce incarceration, reduce recidivism, and increase access to community-based health services.

Did You Know?

By intervening and assuring access to needed services, 85% of the youth we serve in the Intensive Placement Stabilization program become stabilized in their living situations and are not removed from their foster care placements.
