PURPOSE OF THE FORTALEZA PROGRAM


Fortaleza has been developed to help you successfully re-engage in your community. What that looks like is completely up to you.

The Fortaleza Program is a Latino/a Second-Chance Reentry Grant funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).

Target Population

  • 40 Latino youth 18-24 years of age
