The primary objective is to keep our youth off the street and to provide a structured program during their suspension period. The program teaches participants the skills required for them to become successful citizens. The CSR program recognizes that offenders have harmed the community and the community is thus a victim. Community service serves as both a punishment and as a way for offenders to help heal the community they have harmed. The end result is a community that has been repaired and offenders who are less likely to re-offend. CSR is an essential program for this community. It keeps many offenders out of jail by providing an alternative avenue for reparation to the community. As a result, it also saves the taxpayers money, as fewer offenders are incarcerated. CSR gives offenders an opportunity to learn that everyone has responsibilities to their community. CSR is an integral part of the rehabilitation of offenders assigned to the program. Through the program, offenders develop a work ethic, learn to be responsible, develop work skills, and increase self-esteem by completing their assigned tasks, and a chance to give back to the community at large.

According to the North Carolina Division Heath and Human Services (NCDHHS), from 1999 to 2016 more than 12,000 North Carolinians died from opioid-related overdoses. This epidemic is devastating families and communities. It is overwhelming medical providers and is straining prevention and treatment efforts. To tackle this health crisis, the NC Department of Health and Human Services is working to connect people with preventative healthcare, substance use disorder treatment and community supports. This is a complex issue requiring partnership from many sectors and is an effort that needs to be supported through funding and resources to be successful.
