The Social Work Supports Program is comprised of our client social worker, Alisha. The clients that come to JFCY have a very wide range of legal issues and Alisha provides support to young people who have unmet mental health and learning needs in school, people who have experienced violence, homelessness and trauma, who have no income or financial support, who have no or precarious immigration status, or who are facing criminal justice system involvement and lack social and other supports. Through the Social Work Support Program, Alisha ensures JFCY is able to provide meaningful wraparound, trauma-informed support services to our clients who are facing significant adversity. Alisha’s contributions ensure that our legal service providers can work more efficiently to provide legal services and meet the legal needs that brought the young person to JFCY in the first place.
