Youth Justice provides a variety of direct and collaborative services and programming to youth and families.  Our approach focuses on a balance to support youth and family connections, protect the community, hold youth accountable for their actions, and build youth skills to support productive, responsible individuals.  Services are typically court ordered; however, diversion services can be offered.  Youth Justice workers strive to prevent or reduce uncontrollable and delinquent behavior and to strengthen family functioning and connections using Trauma Informed Care and evidence-based practices.  Youth Justice workers maintain close coordination with law enforcement, schools, the Court System, District Attorney's Office, and other behavioral health service agencies.  Services provided within this unit are primarily governed by the Juvenile Justice Code (Chapter 938) and the Children's Code (Chapter 48), and other state and county mandates, and policies.
