​The JUMP (Juvenile Probation United with Mental Health Programming) is an interagency team consisting of a Juvenile Court Judge, a representative of the District Attorney's Office, a representative of the Public Defender's Office, a Juvenile Probation Officer, an Intensive Mental Health Case Manager, a Youth Mentor, and a Family Therapist. JUMP Court is an intensive, graduated phase-based program focusing on building trust, gaining responsibility, competency development, achieving accountability, and providing community protection. The program serves juveniles with a mental health diagnosis who have been adjudicated delinquent. The length of service to each family will be approximately 34 weeks. All juveniles will participate in individual, group, and family counseling, organized community services projects, recreational activities, and frequent Court reviews. Services are held in the home, school and placements through empowerment of the family.

The RISE (Reaching Improvements with Supports and Encouragement) Program is a pre-adjudicated program designed to provide services to juveniles involved in the delinquency system with presenting behavioral health needs in a manner consistent with evidence based practices. This program serves youth on either Informal Probation or a Consent Decree. The youth and family must voluntarily accept services and will be screened by the treatment team for acceptance. Youth will be referred to the Program by the department of Probation Services.

The design of this program is to expedite services to delinquent youth and their families to avoid further involvement with the juvenile justice system. The youth will receive intervention from a Probation Officer, Mental Health Casemanager, and a Family Therapist. These three professionals will provide an intensive team approach.  Services can be delivered at home, school, and in the community.

The length of the program will be six months. Each juvenile and their family will have varying needs and the team will work with each family to tailor an effective case plan that is congruent with Juvenile Probation and the therapeutic need.

​Services are provided in the home, school and community.  Includes individual, group, parenting and family counseling services.
Family Therapy, Juvenile Probation, and Mental Health work as a unified team in all phases of the program from initial assessment through treatment planning and delivery to discharge.
Services are provided at no cost to the family.

The JUMP Program has helped me in many ways. It helped me go to school and get my GED. I haven't been partying or hanging out with a lot of people I used to. I've moved through the program pretty quickly and honestly. The therapy part has helped me a lot. My anger is no where near as bad or uncontrollable as it used to be.  The program gives second chances and shows you that there are people that work for the system that are really are here to help us do better.

Without the RISE program, I would never have graduated high school.  I’m glad they could help me”.
