PLC serves as the Administrative Partner for the Department of Youth Rehabilitative Services’ Community Programming Initiative. In this role, PLC coordinates a continuum of community-based service providers who support court-involved youth and their families.
PLC’s “care coordination pathway” streamlines each youth’s treatment from beginning to end and includes the youth, his/her primary care-givers, natural supports (e.g. local pastor, teacher) and others, such as social workers and case managers. This practice allows PLC to establish a rapport with youth being served and develop long-lasting relationships with those who are providing services to the youth and family. Through these efforts, PLC ensures that court-involved youth and their families achieve personal goals and milestones through participation in a wide range of programs that emphasize individual strengths, personal accountability, public safety, skill development, family involvement and community support.
