This project is working to create a network of justice agencies, schools, and social service agencies to coordinate resources to service troubled youth in rural areas who exhibit psychological and/or behavioral difficulties. The goal of the initiative is to increase the effectiveness of county agencies to help troubled youth and decrease the incidents of juvenile violence, as well as provide prevention programming and enhance service provision. The project will enhance the ability of agencies to share information, develop protocols, provide prevention programs and strengthen services offered by agencies. The project is guided by a County Advising Committee that coordinates the project goals and the data that has been collected since the inception of the Rural Justice Institute. Partnerships with community agencies include the local and state domestic violence service provider, probation department, sheriff's department, Youth Court, school districts, a rural health network, and the county alcohol and substance abuse service provider.

This project will develop more effective services for troubled youth who are still in school and at risk of juvenile delinquency. The project will not only provide important information to existing agencies but it will support the development of collaborative programs between agencies to effectively detect youth at risk of becoming troubled. A coordinated response system has been initiated and the current project will enhanced upon the data gathering and continuing outreach activities with law enforcement, human service, mental health agencies and schools during 2006-2007.
