TAMPA, Fla., June 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TrueCore Behavioral Solutions, formerly G4S Youth Services, announces today the formal change of name and ownership of the multi-state operator of at-risk-youth residential facilities and outpatient services.
G4S Secure Solutions sold its Youth Services subsidiary to an investment group which includes several members of Youth Services' management, who remain at the helm of the new TrueCore Behavioral Solutions.
"For more than 20 years, our company has been providing vital services and compassionate support to troubled children who have been court ordered into juvenile justice facilities," said Martin J. Favis, President & Chief Executive Officer. "Now, under the TrueCore banner, our nearly 2,000 associates are re-dedicated to helping the children in our care overcome their obstacles and discover the true potential that lies within them."
A proven industry leader in providing individualized, evidence-based best practices to at-risk youth, TrueCore focuses on delivering the right service for the right youth, at the right time. With juvenile residential facilities in Florida, Texas, Tennessee and Pennsylvania, TrueCore provides a range of services and support, including alternative education schools and programs for vocational training, substance abuse recovery, behavioral and mental health, and sexual offender treatment.
TrueCore management has outlined an expansion strategy that will add more youth residential facilities and diversify the company's offerings with the addition of step-down programs in community-based settings, providing mental health, behavioral and substance abuse services, ensuring a continuum of prevention, early intervention and treatment options.
"With its distinguished past and an established record of successful outcomes for our youth, TrueCore has already proven its ability to positively impact the lives of the young people in its care – and to do so in a cost-effective way," Favis noted. "As state and local governments increasingly turn to the private sector for program, treatment and operational expertise, TrueCore is well-positioned to make a valuable contribution to the communities we serve."
