Juvenile Reentry

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Reentry is a process that intentionally prepares youth and families for return from Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Centers and any other out of home placement back to their communities.  Activities and communications prior to discharge strengthen the connection between the youth in placement with their family, home, and community.

Key Features of Reentry

  • Evidence-based and research driven.
  • Balanced approach between services provided and supervision of the youth.
  • Reentry officers are highly qualified, trained and experienced.
  • Reentry works within a highly developed case management framework.
  • Emphasizes community supports and multi-agency collaboration.
  • Family focused and youth driven.

The time period when a youth returns to their communities or leaves placement is a time of increased risk, yet this also represents a great opportunity to work with families, informal supports, community partners and organizations for the benefit of the youth and their futures.
