(Email from a DHS caseworker to the Program Director)

“I have JusticeWorks in the home providing services for the Thompson* family. The JusticeWorks Family Resource Specialist (FRS) has been really helpful to the family.  Currently, JWYC services are set to close at the end of December.  A team meeting was held this past Monday, and we discussed how impactful JWYC services have been for the family. David Thompson* qualified for residential treatment, but the DHS team has not been able to find him a bed. JWYC has been able to support the family so effectively through this time that the team decided to pursue ongoing in-home treatment rather than continuing to look for residential providers.”

This was a great compliment as we head into the holidays.
