The VOICES wraparound program targets girls under 18 years of age who face the risk of justice involvement.
VOICES provides gender specific group therapy and 6 to 12 months of holistic case management. The goal is to provide tools to enhance self-esteem, connect with others, adopt healthy living (body, mind, and spirit), and plan for the future. VOICES empowers participants to discover themselves and work toward transformation. The program also includes parents, correctional officers, and community organizations in a collaborative model of care to reduce the risk of future justice involvement among girls in Houston, Texas. The VOICES program at Civic Heart Community Services was awarded funding from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention in 2020.
