The division also runs a residential program for young adults with complex clinical needs.
  • Community Strategies supports adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities to live as independently as possible through a range of community-based residential options offering structure in a caring, home-like environment, as well as day programs.
  • The Crime and Justice Institute is a national-scale consulting practice that works with elected officials, justice system practitioners, policy makers, and thought leaders to effect significant reforms to promote safety and justice.

Guided by excellence, creativity, and compassion, we support individual transitions, strengthen families, promote justice, and improve community safety.
