Memo for fiscal year 2017, updated 2016-04-28

[Archived] Are the kids receiving wrap around services while in NVJDC, and if so what are they? What are some outcomes of the Center in terms of social services/getting children on the right path?

Juveniles remanded to the Northern Virginia Juvenile Detention Center (NVJDC) are provided supports, resources, and interconnectivity with community partners during their time in incarceration. City entities involved include Court Services Unit, Alexandria City Public Schools, and the Department and Community and Human Services. These wraparound services promote a successful re-entry into the community given varying lengths of incarceration for juveniles.

The collaborative process to address the well-being of juveniles at NVJDC is as follows:

The New Beginnings Program, a part of the Center, also works in tandem with local clinicians and probation officers, to include preparation for release and continued services in the community. During calendar years 2013 – 2015, thirty-three youths were ordered to complete the New Beginnings Program and twenty-nine, or eighty-eight percent, completed the program successfully.
