Term of Project

Adolescent youth in Illinois who are dually-involved in both the criminal justice and child welfare systems will benefit from intensive wraparound services and timely access to evidence-based therapies through a Pay for Success project that has enabled new levels of coordination between these government agencies. A service provider network will safely serve youth in families and communities in lieu of institutional care, preventing repeat delinquent behavior, and supporting successful transitions to adulthood.
