How can courts help build stronger communities where families can grow and thrive?
In the second installment of the Family-Centered Fridays Series, Assistant County Attorney and Juvenile Prosecutor Hillary Lantrip Croft
will lead a discussion on community collaboration.
Croft will share how prosecutors, court staff, and community stakeholders can collaborate in serving justice beyond the courtroom by recognizing the barriers families are facing and acting as the “connector” to the resources they need. She will detail how her community has done this by putting together job expos, expungement clinics, and resource fairs to help individuals “bridge the gap” and offer them opportunities to succeed.
Throughout the Family-Centered Fridays series, we will explore ways courts can adopt family-centered practices to foster well-being and stability, reduce delays, and interrupt generational justice involvement.
