In 2008, the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust supported the adoption of Reclaiming Futures by six North Carolina communities in the following counties: Chatham, Cumberland, Forsyth, Guilford, Iredell, Orange, Rowan, Surry, and Yadkin.
Due to the success of these initial sites, North Carolina embarked on the first statewide expansion of Reclaiming Futures through a partnership among the North Carolina Division of Juvenile Justice, the Governor’s Crime Commission, the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust and The Duke Endowment. The state office is building North Carolina’s capacity to oversee implementation of the Reclaiming Futures model, including training, technical assistance, and evaluation support for local sites, including four new sites in 2012.
The state office is committed to working with local sites and state partners to implement the Reclaiming Futures model to work toward the following outcomes:
- Service providers will increase utilization of reliable screening and assessment tools for service referrals and coordination.
- There will be increased access to treatment and recovery services that utilize best practices for service delivery, including effective family engagement strategies.
- Data systems and related processes will be improved to facilitate increased sharing of client information to improve the quality and timeliness of service delivery.
- Youths will have reduced substance use and risk-related behavior, increased social supports, improved school outcomes, and reduction in subsequent involvement with the juvenile justice system.
