The Family Sentencing Alternative Pilot Program

In 2015, House Bill 3503 established the Family Sentencing Alternative Pilot Program, with the goal of providing children better home lives and keeping them out of the foster system and justice system. The program provides resources, supervision, and training for justice system involved parents to help them build strong families that stick together. Keep watching to find out more about the program and hear whether it has been successful so far.
