Reclaiming Futures in the Cumberlands is a national initiative that utilizes the Reclaiming Futures model and philosophy to initiate changes and improve substance abuse interventions for justice-involved youth. The goal of this initiative is to integrate the "Reclaiming Futures" model, philosophy and process into Whitley County's current juvenile justice system. This will be achieved by providing skill enhancement to all community partners resulting in an increased access to quality/coordinated interventions and therefore positive outcomes of the youth and families. This initiative will serve as a model for other courts within the region and state and produce system change. As a new site, we are joining 22 other communities in the country utilizing this effective treatment model. Effective system and community change will result from the shared and strategic leadership provided by the Fellowship Change Team represented by judicial, justice, treatment and community fellows.
