White’s Residential & Family Services has received a grant from The Bertsch Family Foundation of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in support of the young men and women cared for on White’s Wabash campus. Duane Huffer, a board member for the Bertsch Family Foundation, served as Superior Court Judge in Kosciusko County, and is familiar with White’s services and successes with adjudicated youth.
“It is imperative to keep our therapists, caseworkers, house parents, and teachers up to date in trauma-informed and evidence-based therapies,” said Matthew Riggle, White’s Vice President for Residential Services. “This grant will be used to continue this training.”
White’s provides residential, academic, therapeutic, and vocational services for young men and women in the juvenile justice system throughout the state of Indiana, caring for 200-250 adolescents each year.
White’s is deeply grateful to Diane Bertsch, Judge Huffer and The Bertsch Family Foundation for this support.
