The BrownStone Too, Inc.
Community & Human Development
The BrownStone Too, Inc., (TBSToo) is a community housing & human development organization with programs designed to teach and enhance life and career skills to at-risk youth and income-assistance recipients.
TBSToo is seeking funding to implement a structured, seamless system of care to address the needs of youth and young adults. There is an old African proverb that says, “It takes a whole village to raise a child”. Some of our clients are locked in a childlike state.
Hence, TBSToo has established ‘A Family Development and Enhancement Collaborative’ (FD&EC), a coalition of agencies working together to administer supportive services for prevention and re-citizenship for youth and adults.
The collaborative plans to implement a full service Family Development & Enhancement Center’s in the Atlanta metropolitan communities of Georgia. FD&EC has identified juveniles and female adult recipients as those who require assistance in lieu of incarceration or transitioning back into society after release from prison. Utilizing the proposed interventions,
FD&EC’s programs are designed to decrease recidivism, substance abuse use, and increase participants’ skill level, and address social service needs. The Goals are designed to support the major goals identified in the Memorandum of Agreement between the United States Government and the State of Georgia concerning the treatment of institutionalized persons.
The Family Development & Enhancement Center will utilize a three-tiered approach to comprehensive service delivery:
Tier 1 – Intake and Assessment
Tier 2 – Health and Wellness
Tier 3 – Educational & Training Services
