Hillside Family of Agencies Publishes Juvenile Justice PFS Case Study with Third Sector

The Alliance for Children and Families launched Disruptive Forces in Action to showcase the innovative ways its members and others in the sector are harnessing the six forces introduced in its 2011 report, Disruptive Forces: Driving a Human Services Revolution. In its case study of Attracting Investors, Not Donors, Alliance member Hillside Family of Agencies and issue expert Third Sector Capital Partners, Inc. discuss Pay for Success, an emerging funding model that unites nonprofits, government, and philanthropic and corporate investors around achieving a social return on investment.

Hillside has partnered with Third Sector on a New York State Pay for Success project to prevent or reduce the number of days that youth involved with the juvenile justice system spend in detention and/or out-of-home placement. Known as the Intensive Community Asset program, the project prevents and reduces involvement with the juvenile justice system through place-based services, neighborhood-based community asset navigators, around-the-clock crisis support, and Hillside case managers.
