Every one of our young clients can rely on a dedicated case manager who coordinates a wraparound support team of legal, social, psychological and job training professionals.
This network creates an individual game plan to help our clients deal with the root causes of the issues they face, many stemming from the systemic racial and economic injustice they face every day.
This proven-on-the-ground program is our way of walking young people through, then away from, the criminal justice system.
The only thing we ask of our clients is that they work with us throughout the whole process. Youth in North Lawndale are often, rightfully, distrustful and disengaged. But LCLC outreach workers relentlessly work to establish a personal connection and provide mentorship. They tirelessly re-engage with our clients to keep them actively participating in services. We will be with them every step of the way, no matter how long it takes.
