Strong Futures is a workforce initiative that is aimed at providing stability to opportunity youth, severely disconnected youth, and/or justice-involved youth by providing connection to full-time employment and employment retention, as the primary goal of the initiative; the secondary goal of the initiative is to help participants continue to address a variety of potential needs that prevent them from building a stable life.

The Strong Futures initiative first began in June 2016 as a pilot by the City of Chicago, Department of Family and Support Services (DFSS) in partnership with St. Sabina Church. Strong Futures addresses the needs of disconnected young adults, between the ages of 18-24, who are justice-involved and/or have other barriers to stability, by connecting them with full time employment. Strong Futures provides intensive coaching, comprehensive wrap-around services, and support that will enable them to stabilize economically, retain employment, and develop into productive, responsible men in society.
