Commander Perez Honored
PMHC is honoring Commander John E. Perez on behalf of the Pasadena Police Department for its partnership which focuses on the Youth Accountability Program and works with juveniles who have committed a minor first criminal offense. PMHC and the Pasadena Police Department have been community partners for more than 10 years and its partnership has been successful in keeping youth out of the criminal justice system. The program provides youth with an opportunity to take accountability for their actions and helps them receive a fresh start towards a successful future. Included in the program are individual, family and group therapy for youth and their families, as well as parenting classes. In 2011, 80% of youth and 81% of Youth Accountability Program clients made gains toward clinical goals.
“The Pasadena Police Department is extremely honored to be recognized by Pasadena Mental Health Center” said Commander Perez. “The Pasadena community is connected through a global vision to enhance the lives of our youth by providing them with the knowledge to succeed in their endeavors. We are extremely grateful for the existence of organizations such as PMHC and their commitment to improving the quality of life for all people.”
Commander Perez will be recognized at fifth annual Fête – Turning a New Leaf, hosted by Pasadena Mental Health on Saturday, April 28, 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. We invite you to attend and show your support.
