 Family Court CSP

The Family Court Client Specific Planning (CSP) Program provides community-based supervision for court-involved youth up to the age of 15 for a period up to one year. Its purpose is to help youth with court involvement live at home, remain in school, abide by court mandates, and stay out of further trouble Youth in the Family Court CSP program participate in programs rooted in a youth development model that emphasizes strengths and positive attributes, as well as avoiding negative behavior. Regular program activities include: case management; HIV/AIDS prevention and education services; and life skills groups. School attendance is monitored and school and home visits are made. They receive appropriate referrals to community-based services and community-based placements.

Youth abide by a curfew and agree to random urinalysis testing. Monthly progress reports are submitted to the Court, Law Guardian and the Office of Corporate Counsel pending case disposition. After disposition of the case, reports are sent directly to Probation.

Program Eligibility: Youth are eligible if they are 15 or younger with pending delinquency case(s), youth adjudicated delinquent, and have a home in which they can reside during community monitoring.
