The Reintegration Support Outreach Program has been operated by Murray McKinnon Foundation since 1995.
The Reintegration Support Outreach Program services young persons who are involved with the Youth Justice System. The young persons are between the ages of 12 to 17 years of age at the time of their offence.
The Reintegration Support Outreach Program offers a dedicated, gender responsive, mobile worker to provide assistance in the delivery of the individualized risk reduction plan. The worker will strive to form a strength based relationship and be a strong mentor for the young person. The worker will help in enhancing the social, recreational and living skills for the young person. The intent of this program is to impact upon the rate and seriousness of recidivism and to assist the young person in developing the required skills to successfully reintegrate and be connected to their community.
