JusticeWorks YouthCare to Provide Services for Lebanon County!

On September 13th, 2019, our JusticeWorks team met with representatives from Lebanon County Children and Youth to discuss the implementation of our signature services, STOPP® and JustCare®. We welcome Lebanon County as our 44th Pennsylvania County!

Lebanon, formerly known as Steitztown, was historically home to a major steel mill operated by Bethlehem Steel. Lebanon bologna originates from the area and was first made in the city. Lebanon’s native son, Kerry Collins, born Dec. 30, 1972, played football for the Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans, and Oakland Raiders – among many other teams.

We look forward to an enduring partnership with Lebanon County.  We will do ‘whatever it takes’ to ensure the highest level of success for the children and families of Lebanon County.

Success Story

JWYC Lehigh County Receives Recognition for Excellence!

(Letter received from a Lehigh County Office of Children and Youth Caseworker):

I just want to take a minute to commend JWYC staff, Rachel Diez and Karen Schubert for their exceptional work on a case!!

Their efforts are the key reason why I love working with your agency. Karen’s devotion to helping Steve* step into the parenting role and her amazing support to Andrew* has really had a positive impact on Steve* and Andrew’s* relationship. Also, the way Karen has supported Tammy*, Eddie*, and Sandy* is beyond commendable! I appreciate the countless hours Karen has put in and the numerous roles she’s played in this reunification process.

Additionally, I’m extremely thankful to Rachel Diez for her regular guidance and support to Tammy*, Steve*, and Andrew* both during and outside of visits. This family came with some challenges that may have been intimidating to others, especially with Andrew* and Steve’s* strained relationship. But Rachel provided exceptional services that I believe allowed this transition to run smoothly.

Again I want to thank you all for everything you’ve done. You guys really made the difference!!
