JJTC is a Series of Processes
That Ensure:
• Access for court involved youth to a comprehensive,
integrated continuum of care within existing resources and
funding streams
• Accurate consistent reports of progress through services
• Outcome-driven, data-driven services that end when the
goals of the treatment contract are met
• Interagency collaboration and partnership resulting in
increased supervision and accountability
