LaSalle was invited to join the Dutchess County Juvenile Re-entry Consortium, and attend the Vera Institute for Justice Best Practices Conference as a member of that team in October 2014. The effort fostered improved re-entry practices for delinquent youth following placement at Voluntary Agency Residential Programs. This 18 month effort will be data informed, and benefit from learning about efforts across the County regarding re-entry strategies. We’re honored to have a place at the table, and see this directly benefitting our Community Connections Services everywhere we offer them, as well as allowing us to be involved in the cutting edge technology for providing successful reunification following placement. Since we have been actively involved in innovative After Care service provision for decades, we have a great deal of experience to offer this undertaking.
