Juvenile Services

Project S.T.A.Y.

Juvenile Services also hosts a very effective intervention program called Project S.T.A.Y. (School Truancy Alternative for Youth) since July 1998.  Youth are either court ordered to participate or can be referred by schools, parents, or other local providers on a voluntary basis. This program is open to youth age 6-18 who resides within the 20th Judicial District and who meet the statutory criteria for truancy.

Case Managers serve as a liaison between community, state agencies, county attorneys, schools, family and ancillary services. They provide: intensive case management of the truant youth; daily verification of school attendance; weekly visits during the first 30 days or as often as needed; referrals for academic assessment and testing; individual and/or group tutoring, referrals for group, individual and family therapy with a licensed therapist; drug and alcohol testing and referrals to community agencies for evaluation and treatment if needed; classes in youth awareness and parenting; and other services that might be appropriate such as referrals for housing, daycare, transportation, and indigent health care.
