Family Matters When Turning Your Life Around

Family matters for individuals working to turn their lives around. Youth Advocate Programs (YAP), Inc.’s trained advocate mentors help young people identify their strengths while connecting them and their families with tools to achieve their goals. YAP’s family-centered, strength-based approach is also evident in its programs that serve and tap into the talents of adults returning home from prison. Wayne Brewton and his wife, Vickie, said family support has been key to his re-entry and his work as YAP’s Baltimore Safe Streets Crime Prevention Coordinator.
