Community Forum Event

Tabor Children’s Services will be hosting a community forum to discuss how the agency and community members can work together to better support the Germantown community. The community forum will serve as a foundation to expose the community to Tabor’s wide-range of available services; listen to ideas in relation to supporting our community; and share ways we can all work together to strengthen families, keep children safe and promote independence among our community members. Tabor will also be forming new affiliations with community members and organizations who share the common goal of improving the child welfare system through partnerships and community involvement.

Refreshments will be served and free parking is available to all who attend.

Parenting education for teen fathers & Restorative Justice principles for youth on probation

For nearly a quarter century, Tabor Children’s Services has offered a Supervised Independent Living (SIL) program to prepare youth with the skills to manage independently when they leave the child welfare system at age 21. Through a grant from the Hoxie Harrison Smith Foundation, Tabor will provide flexible site instruction, that is, both in the home and in the office, to youth in receiving SIL services. This will include parenting education for adolescent mothers and fathers, as well as training in Balanced And Restorative Justice (BARJ) principles for youth referred through the juvenile justice system. The flexible site approach enables Tabor to accommodate the schedules of the youth, who each attend an educational program and maintain at least part-time employment. Read Full Story Here.
