Joanus Youngblood

Differential Response Path II Case Manager

My name is Joanus Youngblood,  I have been a Differential Response Path 2 Case Manager since 2015. I started working for YSB in 2010, assisting teens in the juvenile justice system, transition back into the community. During this time I was able to make several connections with our community partners,  and become more familiar with the resources available to our consumers. I was born and raised in the community, so I am relatable and I can identify with our families. The skills, connection, and experience I have gain in my personal life growing up in Contra Costa County, and years working with YSB has equipped me with the knowledge to successfully support our consumers navigate through the system and community to gain the services needed to succeed.
