JHB Pilot Program

In the fall of 2019,  The Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF), Rhode Island for Community and Justice (RICJ), and Juvenile Hearing Boards (JHB’s), embarked on an initiative to enhance services provided by urban JHB’s.  This Pilot program enhanced diversion services by providing early intervention with staff making direct referrals to the Family Care Community Partnerships (FCCP), a DCYF contracted program, as well as data collection, assessment tool administration and DCYF supported evaluation.
