Lane County Youth Services is launching a new program focused on improving results for youth dually involved in Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Systems.

Lane County

Lane County is one of thirteen jurisdictions across the nation chosen to implement a new juvenile justice program model. It’s designed to reduce the number of youth who “crossover” between child welfare and the juvenile justice system.

“At any time we have between 400 and 500 youth somewhere in our system.”

That’s John Aarons. He’s been working with Lane County Youth Services for nearly 30 years. In his view, the newly launched Crossover Youth Practice Model will help formalize an important partnership.
