Juvenile Justice

Working alongside our partners in the juvenile justice system, TASC seeks to strengthen quality of life for youth, families, and communities. A primary aim of our youth programming is to offer developmentally appropriate solutions that guide youth toward positive, safe, healthy, and pro-social behavior.

 

Youth: Alternatives to Detention

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

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.
