Washington County

Youth Diversion Program

This Child and Family Services program provides case management services to youth to prevent negative involvement with the juvenile justice system. PCS collaborates with the Washington County Department of Juvenile Services, the youth, and their family to hold a restorative meeting to determine appropriate amends, establish a diversion contract, and connect the youth and family to necessary community resources. We practice a restorative justice approach that values repairing the harm done and rebuilding community relationships, while making sure the youth stays connected to essential community resources.
