Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $784,195)

SGA Youth & Family Services will provide intensive case management and career readiness services to youth who reside in Lake County in Northern Illinois and who are transitioning out of detention. Prior to release, youth receive SGA’s trauma-informed assessment and weekly case management services. Upon release, youth will receive at least weekly virtual and/or in-person case management for nine months, with followup for six additional months as well as career readiness services. The project also will increase the capacity of the systems that interact with reentry youth by providing trauma-informed training to probation and juvenile residential facility staff.
