The Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family (GOYFF) has awarded approximately $950,000 in grant funding to 10 organizations working to prevent juvenile delinquency and reduce rates of recidivism in juveniles.
“Arizona is committed to supporting ongoing efforts to prevent juvenile delinquency and reduce juvenile recidivism,” said Director Maria Cristina Fuentes. “I look forward to seeing the impact of this funding as we expand efforts to improve outcomes for at-risk youth statewide.”
