The FY 2016 Reducing Reliance on Confinement and Improving Community-Based Responses for Girls at Risk of Entering the Juvenile Justice System will strengthen and expand the use of community-based and gender and culturally responsive programs for girls and promote the development of girls and their individual strengths.

The goals of the Annie Malone St. Louis Girls-At-Risk Program are to divert at-risk girls from confinement to community level programs; prevent at-risk girls from entering the formal juvenile justice system; and develop and implement evaluations of system level changes in diversion and prevention initiatives. The program will apply strategic approaches to improve the coordination and number of referral linkages to existing community services and treatments; facilitate improvement and increase the number of gender-specific trauma informed community services and treatments; improve and increase the number of responses of community stakeholders to deliver appropriate services and treatments; develop and implement a mentor and volunteer advocacy program comprised of a specific number of participants at the community level; and examine the effectiveness of programs related to all activities and outcomes. This project will develop a sustainable implementation plan with the primary purpose of serving and advocating for girls at risk of entering the juvenile justice system.
