Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $400,000)

The Juvenile Tribal Healing to Wellness Court will be designed to help at-risk youth become contributing members of the Pueblo of Laguna as they enter adulthood, as well as to reduce the rising percentage of recidivism among youth with substance use issues and delinquency issues. The intention is to also create a “Youth Kafé” to give the youth a safe, substance-free place to develop an appreciation of activities (crafts, board games, video games, tutoring, and acute counseling).
