The Credible Messenger Mentor Program (CMM) is a group based mentoring program that helps young adults transform the attitudes and behaviors that led to their involvement with the criminal justice system. Mentors who have faced similar challenges and share similar cultural backgrounds as the youth build supportive relationships with the young people through the group process.
The Aftercare Case Planner provides supportive case management services to a maximum of 12 youth, ages 12-18 who reside in the Bronx, to support them as they transition safely from residential placement and back into the community. The Aftercare Case Planner will streamline services and service plan goals for youth, starting in placement and continuing into the community. The Aftercare Case Planner will collaborate closely with the Credible Messenger group mentors, in addition to other service providers, including but not limited to the ACS/Placement & Permanency staff and school staff. The Aftercare Case Planner is required to complete all ACS documentation requirements and adhere to the Preventive Services Standards, including meeting appropriate casework contacts and assessing for child safety.
