    Wayne County Circuit Court Jurist Feedback 2009-2010

    Feedback from our DHS-appointed auditors from the 12/10 Families and Schools Together (FAST) program audit
  • The program is supported by project staff, several parent volunteers, and a youth volunteer. All project staff and volunteers are very enthusiastic about the program and the positive effects on the families.
  • In addition, both the youth and the families are very favorable about the program. Several parents mentioned that the program is helping them with their children and understanding their own behavior. Several young men talked about the role of the program on improving their behavior in school and getting along with siblings and parents.
