Mission Kids Child Advocacy Center

Mission Kids Child Advocacy Center received a grant through the Innovation Lab for their project "Innovative Intervention Strategy for Youth with Problematic Sexualized Behaviors". Mission Kids Child Advocacy Center (Mission Kids) seeks to effect change upon the juvenile justice system by improving mental health services for youth with problematic sexualized behaviors. Partnered with local agencies, Mission Kids will shift perception and practice among policy makers to ensure youth are diverted from the justice system into specialized, evidence-based therapy. This will result in improved resiliency for youth and families, and reduced recidivism in the affected population.
