Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $335,381)

The Community Based Prevention Initiatives for At-Risk Youth (CBPI) will intervene early in the lives of 560 at-risk youth, allowing the identification of psychosocial issues and risk levels, the creation of appropriate treatment plans and referrals to appropriate services, with the goal of preventing juvenile arrests. The goal of the program is to utilize proven and successful juvenile justice tools and interventions to actually prevent children and adolescents from entering the juvenile justice system through an efficient and systemic approach. The program has identified the following performance measures: (1) 100% of clients served will have their risk level and psychosocial needs identified (2) 100% of clients served will receive research based tools that allows the application of appropriate, targeted interventions to address the youths' service needs and (3) 75% will not commit an offense within a year of program completion. Monetary savings to the community will prove substantial, but pale in comparison with the positive impact that identifying needs and providing appropriate services will have on at-risk children and their families.
