Fostering Responsibility Education and Employment (FREE) Program

The Fostering Responsibility, Education and Employment (FREE) Program in New Britain is provided through funding from the Department of Children and Families (DCF).  The FREE Program offers re-entry support to adolescents, ages 12 to 17, who have been committed to DCF as delinquent and who are returning to their communities from out-of-home placements, including public and private congregate care treatment settings, the Connecticut Juvenile Training School (CJTS) and youth correctional settings.  Services begin while a young person is in congregate care and continue based on individual needs.  Daily programming focuses on an array of services which contribute to the adolescent's well-being and fosters growth in all areas of functioning, including the development of social skills, life skills, vocational skills, educational assistance and employment.  Services accommodate a range of ages, but emphasize career development and independent living.  This program has a capacity of 40 youth at any given time.
