Washington State Program Offers Peer Support for Justice-Involved Families
January 2, 2013
Developed by the University of Washington, Seattle, Models for Change program that helps parents and guardians of justice system-involved youth understand the juvenile court process. Facilitated by caregivers of youth who have been through the juvenile justice system, the program includes a court orientation, agency presentations, one-on-one support, and community outreach.
“A Guidebook for Implementing Juvenile Justice 101” provides more information about this family engagement program, a 6-month plan for implementing the program in local courts, and training materials for partners.
