Youth With Faces gives youth in the juvenile justice system a second chance to be more than a faceless statistic.
Making poor choices is often part of growing up, but for incarcerated youth the poverty and dysfunction that led to their mistakes can create a cycle of crime difficult for any teen to overcome alone. This is why we are here, every day without fail, with respect, accountability, and belief in their potential. We help Dallas County youth change doing time into a time to learn and practice critical character lessons and work skills. As a result, they significantly reduce their chances of returning to custody and can build a new identity – as a capable young person with a contribution to make.
