WestCare Tennessee’s staff worked hand-in-hand with the local Cocke County Tennessee Sheriff’s Office to help facilitate evidence-based programs such as Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), Breaking the Chains of Trauma, Botvin LifeSkills Training Parent program, and a host of job readiness classes. All eight participants successfully completed their sessions and graduated from the program on October 31, 2021. This was the first Jail Cohort program of its kind in the state of Tennessee. It was an honor to be asked to be part of this remarkable journey with these gentlemen. WestCare Tennessee started the next cohort on November 15, 2021.
