Juvenile Services

Juvenile Community Programs

The Juvenile Community Corrections Bureau provides programs and supervision to provide effective prevention and intervention services to youth and their families in probation. Many programs and resources are offered throughout the county.

INDEPENDENT LIVING PROGRAM (ILP): The Independent Living Program (ILP) is a Federal and State funded program that assists youth who are placed outside their home and into foster care between the ages of 16 and 19.  Youth ordered to placement through the court are eligible for ILP services up to the day before their 21st birthday.

Services available to ILP-eligible youth include life skills classes such as cooking, etiquette and self-esteem, computer skills, credit counseling, and driving.  They also attend health fairs, pregnancy and parenting conferences, and employment and education conferences.

ILP pays for college school books, forklift certification, food handlers certification and any work related clothing, boots, or tools needed.  They provide job referrals, help eligible ILP youth who are homeless find shelter, and consistently give gas cards, bus passes, and food gift cards to those eligible youth who are in need.  For more information click here.

GENDER RESPONSIVE ADOLESCENT CASELOAD ENRICHMENT (G.R.A.C.E.) PROGRAM: The goal of the G.R.A.C.E. Program is to have a positive impact on the increasing population of female juvenile offenders and to reduce recidivism and out-of-home placement.  This program provides specialized services to adolescent female probationers with a history of trauma, substance abuse, or runaway behaviors.  The program offers education opportunities as well as creative and innovative methods to complete community service.

WRAP AROUND PROGRAM: Wraparound is a program intended to direct treatment resources to the entire family not just supervised youth.  The offered resources are dependent on the needs and progress of the youth and the family.  The program provides individualized, comprehensive, community-based services and support to children and adolescents with serious emotional and/or behavioral disturbances.  The goal is to provide a team that will work together to keep the youth in the home and maintain compliance with probation terms and conditions.  The team members include the Probation Department, Children and Family Services, Behavioral Health, and community providers, who offer services for the program.  Probation Officers coordinate with those providers and support agencies to address emotional, behavioral, and mental health needs that have resulted in criminal conduct.
