Reduce, Educate, Support, Train, Organize, Realize & Empower
The RESTORE (Reduce, Educate, Support, Train, Organize, Realize, Empower) Program is a pilot program created to address “systems level” issues that affect the lives and realities of the families involved with Family Court. The RESTORE Program has two functions: first, the Program would bring together a group of agencies that have contact with high-risk populations in order to create a multidisciplinary team capable of crafting a comprehensive, coordinated approach to and understanding of the social and socioeconomic realities of the families in our community. Agencies represented on this team would work closely with case management teams to ensure a collaborative and holistic approach to working with families.
