Family/Youth Respite Aftercare Services
Our program is designed for youth referred by DJJ who have been arrested for a Domestic Violence (DV) offense on a household member, and are in need of more intense family stabilization (e.g. documented history of domestic violence by a family member, family at risk of dependency system, court involvement) OR youth in probation regardless of adjudication status referred for counseling by the local probation office.
Services are intended to help youth and their families after an arrest, a respite stay or referral from a probation officer to assist with integration into their home environment and community through effective communication, identification of emotions and coping mechanisms.
