Chatham Collaboration Awarded Prize to Aid in Technical Assistance to Improve Services for High Risk Youth
Chatham County was selected in April 2018 as one of four communities nationally to participate in a technical assistance award from the Georgetown Center for Juvenile Justice. Chatham County Juvenile Court, Chatham County Safety Net Planning Council, the Coastal Georgia Indicators Coalition, and Gateway Community Service Board applied as a collaborative on behalf of community partners working to support and strengthen diversion services for youth in our community to keep them out of involvement with the juvenile justice system.
Local partners will use this technical assistance from Georgetown to help organizations in Chatham County increase communication and collaboration through data sharing to best meet the needs of youth in our community. This award will help our community learn from other communities across the nation and provide us with national expert support to best address the needs of youth in our community who are at risk of involvement with the juvenile justice system. It will support existing efforts and collaborations already working to address these needs in our community. For information on the award please click here.
