Programs & Services

GJR Preventative Aftercare (PAC) is a comprehensive program that is family focused and community-based. It is designed to provide structure, supervision, and support for youth and their families to maintain permanency. Interventions are trauma-informed and provided at individualized levels of intensity within multiple settings to include home, school, and community.

Designed to assist youth in avoiding of out-of-home care whenever possible and appropriate and improve maladaptive behaviors. If out-of- home care becomes necessary, this service will assist youth and families in reunification once placement is terminated.

This service serves as the foundation for all other program services.
