The Juvenile Diversion Team is a short-term voluntary program that works with youth and families not currently involved in the juvenile justice system who have problems such as truancy, not complying with rules in the home and/or running away.
The Juvenile Diversion Team provides complete assessment of needs for youth and family, development of service plans targeting problem behaviors, available 24/7 support and intensive case management for a period of approximately 3 months. The goal of the Juvenile Diversion Team is to support youth in increasing responsible behaviors at home school and communities and preventing future involvement with the court system. Eligibility Criteria: Youth ages 6-17. The staff with the Juvenile Diversion Team work out of the Cabarrus Street Office.
