What We Do
CommuniCare is unique in that it does many things in a very cost effective manner. We:
- Juvenile Assessment Center (JAC): One of the primary diversion programs for juvenile court. “JAC” utilizes a case management approach to redirecting negative behaviors that have caused the youth problems at school, in the home or with law enforcement. JAC uses a centralized set of intake, assessment, case management and other youth intervention activities for at-risk and early juvenile court-involved youth and their families.
- Teens Making A Change Youth Leadership Development (TMAC): TMAC this program works with at-risk and typically developing adolescents to build citizenship and leadership skills using an asset and community service orientation. All youth from across the county are welcome and encouraged to attend. This program builds the leadership qualities for youth. TMAC meets at 109 Bradford Ave. which is at the corner of Bradford Avenue and Hay Street. TMAC meets every Thursday evening at 5:30 p.m.
