Provide and share solutions that promote the well-being of children and families in need of a second chance.
Eckerd's community based services in are designed to address the emotional and behavioral needs of youth and their families as a juvenile justice dispositional alternative in the following situations: 1) to maintain youth in their communities as a dispositional alternative to residential placement; 2) to maintain youth in their community while they await residential placement; 3) to provide support and services to the family while the youth is receiving treatment in a residential placement; and 4) to provide transitional services for youth returning to their home communities from a residential placement. Part of Eckerd's new community based delivery system in North Carolina is to rehabilitate youth and improve outcomes, these services are family-focused, highly effective, cost efficient and evidence based. Individualized treatment plans include wrap-around services, evidence-based interventions, and family support through a network of community resources designed to strengthen the family unit and promote eventual self-sufficiency and last an average of six months. Eckerd serves youth in five DJJ regions as follows: Region 1 (Asheville area), Region 3 (Charlotte area), Region 4 (Greensboro area), Region 5 (Lumberton area) and Region 6 (Raleigh area).
