Developing Community-Based Alternatives to Incarceration for Charleston Youth!

The Charleston ATI Collaborative is a partnership between community and system stakeholders in Charleston to develop community-based alternatives to youth incarceration. Convened by CCFY, our collaborative envisions a world in which incarceration is no longer a primary response to children who run afoul of the law. Recognizing that overreliance on the juvenile justice system is harmful, ineffective, and costly, the collaborative aims to reduce reliance on incarceration and build community capacity to serve youth.

The Charleston ATI Collaborative includes members from:

  • The ACLU of South Carolina
  • Girls Rock Charleston
  • Family Corps
  • We Are Family
  • Cradle to Career Collaborative
