Programs About Support JEVS

The Choice is Yours (TCY) is a program for people who have committed their first nonviolent drug-related crime and are at risk of going to prison for a minimum amount of time. TCY works together with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office (DA), Municipal Court, and the Defender Association of Philadelphia (PD). In this program, mentors support participants in continuing their education, planning for their future careers, and getting involved in community service projects. If participants successfully finish the program, they can have their criminal records erased, which helps remove the negative label and reduces the chances of them getting into trouble with the law again.


  • One-on-one case management
  • Individualized service plans
  • Access to skills training and basic education services
  • Job search and job employment assistance
  • Community service placements


Participants must be first-time, nonviolent felony drug offenders and must be referred to TCY by the District Attorney’s Office. 


TCY is free for eligible participants.
