Montrose Juvenile Services encompasses two distinctive programs: Senate Bill 94 (SB 94), and Juvenile Diversion.
SB 94 works with youth ages 12-18 who have received charges in district court on both pre-adjudicated and sentenced status. The program aims to aid in the prevention of detention over population, commitments to the Department of Human Services and overall protection of the community. Montrose Juvenile Services encompasses SB 94 Program funding, which allows us to provide intake screening, inter-agency evaluation and staffing services through the Community Evaluation Team (CET), substance abuse assessments and treatment, UA monitoring, individual and family therapy, restorative services, tracking, and case management.
Juvenile Diversion, the second component of Montrose Juvenile Services, receives referrals from the District Attorney's Office. Youth that qualify for the Diversion program must admit to the crime of which they have been allegedly charged. The Diversion Specialist will work with them to complete useful public service, restitution, and counseling. Upon sucessful completion of the program, the charges are dropped and expunged from the youth's record and the youth is not required to be involved in the court process. The Diversion program's goal is to deter the juvenile away from the costly court process, and to give clients a second chance.
The Useful Public Service Work Crew program is a component of Hilltop's Montrose Juvenile Services. Struggling teens ages 12-18 who have been ordered to complete useful public service hours are referred to Hilltop where they are provided with opportunities to give back to their community through restorative volunteering. Work Crews of four to eight youth are available to local businesses, and are supervised by a Work Crew Specialist.
