What We Do
Life Connections’ mission is keeping kids out of jail and keeping families connected. We have been developing adolescents and strengthening homes since 1997. We do this through programs designed to help our youth and families find their own solutions to whatever problems they face. Since our inception we have worked with over 5,000 youth and their families most of which were referred to us from the Department of Juvenile Justice. We currently operate 17 programs in 9 counties. Our transformative programming is focused on mentoring kids, strengthening families, restorative justice, building kinship, clinical services and vocational training.
Interesting Info
  • We serve over 200 families and youth a year.
  • A study conducted a few years ago showed that we reduced recidivism from 80% to 60% in kids who went through our programming
  • To reduce the number of youth negatively impacted by the justice system.
