Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $483,334)

The OJJDP FY 2015 Second Chance Act Supporting Latino/a Youth from Out-of-Home Placement to the Community program will promote effective and successful reentry services for Latino/a youth who are transitioning back into their communities from secure confinement facilities, including out-of-home placement. This solicitation will fund mentoring and comprehensive transitional services that emphasize development of life and parenting skills in offenders who are Latino/a youth. This program is authorized pursuant to Section 211 of the Second Chance Act, P.L. 110-199.

Pima Prevention Partnership program will use a trauma-informed approach, to address factors including abuse and neglect, sexual trauma, violence, or the loss of a loved one, through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s six principles for trauma-informed environments to reduce the risk of re-traumatizing. The program will serve 40 Latino/a youth that are re-entering back into their communities by providing high levels of consistency and predictability in the implementation of activities, a non-judgmental service environment, on-going staff training, and robust community referral relationships. Staff members will be trained in the “Providing Shelter from the Storm” trauma-informed care model.
