COMMUNITY Services:

Child, Youth and Family Support Center (CYFSC)

CJR’s Child, Youth and Family Support Center (CYFSC) provides services to juveniles with delinquency charges and status offenses, such as running away, truancy, breaking school rules and otherwise acting out.  Funded by the Judicial Branch, Court Support Services Division (CSSD), the CYFSC incorporates research and evidence-based programs and services.  Service delivery by highly qualified and trained staff ensures positive outcomes.  Program services range from assessment to more intensive support, including multi-modal, center-based care.  Assistance to participating children, youth and families is provided as needed and may include crisis intervention, clinical assessment, family mediation, individual therapy, case management, educational advocacy, substance abuse treatment, support groups for parents, gender-specific, psycho-educational and skills-based groups, trauma-informed groups, cognitive behavioral interventions, anger management groups, as well as life skills, job readiness and vocational training, and aftercare following discharge from the program.  A critical component of CJR’s Child, Youth and Family Support Centers is the focus on providing strength-based, “wrap-around” services to meet the needs of the entire family.  Average length of services is four months but the program is designed to meet the needs of individual families and involvement with the CYFSC may be shorter or longer, depending upon the needs of each family.
