In partnership with Toledo Public Schools, the East Toledo Family Center offer an alternative to suspension program for youth in grades 5 - 8. Youth are referred from their school principal and attend programming on-site at ETFC for two days. Our Bridges Coordinator also provides follow up services to ensure that the children who attend the program are on track and showing improved behavior in the classroom.
The Family Center works closely with the Lucas County Juvenile Court to offer a positive alternative to extended secured detention. We work together to help our clients in their quest to live goal-oriented, law abiding lives by teaching clients to take responsibility for their own behaviors.
