Connecticut's Innovative Approach with Status Offenders: An Evaluation of the Family With Service Needs Project

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In 2007, The State of Connecticut completely reorganized the treatment and assistance given to status offenders. Recognizing the reality that status offenders should be diverted from formal justice responses and that these youth were often struggling with family and school issues; the state treated every status offense case as a Family With Service Needs (FWSN). These youth would now be directed to community resourced for assistance and treatment, and those with specific needs would be referred to Family Support Centers for individualized, group and family therapy. This project officially commenced in October 2007, with the selection and initiation of four sites as part of Phase I of the project: Connecticut FSCs and include: Waterbury (CT Junior Republic), Hartford (Wheeler Clinic), Bridgeport (CT Renaissance) and New Haven (St. Francis). To ensure the highest quality programs and services the Connecticut Judicial Branch, Court Support Services Division (CSSD), in conjunction with The Justice Research Center has conducted the Process and Outcome Evaluation of the 2007-08 Connecticut Family with Service Needs Project. The program services will be presented along with the results of the process evaluation. Suggestions for future research and developments of this initiative will also be explored.
