Many youth served through a CMO have involvement with the juvenile justice system. Involvement with the juvenile justice system may result in a station house adjustment, a referral to a diversion program or in some instances arrest, placement in a juvenile detention center, or a sentence to probation once their charges have been resolved.
How Can We Help?
The care management organization helps the family navigate the system of care. Using the Wraparound Approach our focus is to meet the needs of youth who are involved with the juvenile justice system.
The CMO can:
- Support the youth and family during their involvement with the juvenile justice system
- Advocate on behalf of the youth to the court system
- Participate in court hearings
- Refer and link to community support and services as an alternative to juvenile detention.
The goal is to provide the youth and family with the needed support so the youth can be successful in their home, in their school, and in their community.
A CMO offers assistance to the youth and family during their involvement with the juvenile justice system.
