Secretary Daly’s Weekly Letter

Last week was a full and productive time for our agency and providers as we continued our work in serving Florida’s at-risk youth and families.  I hope you will take a moment to read the stories about the accomplishments of our agency staff, our colleagues, and the youth in our care.

As always, I am always looking for opportunities to showcase the work you do – on and off the clock – to enrich your communities. I know there is even more going on than what I report here, so I would like to encourage each of you to keep the weekly letter in mind and remember to share your good news. It’s easy – email news@djj.state.fl.us or call (850) 921–5900 by Thursday at noon.

Florida Smart Justice Alliance 2015 Justice Summit

Chief of Research and Data Integrity Mark Greenwald and Civil Citation Coordinator Theda Roberts participated in a plenary panel during the Smart Justice Alliance’s Justice Summit in Sarasota last week. The panel was entitled Roadmap to System Excellence:  Strengthening the Front Door and touched on the success of civil citation, challenges to implementation, increasing opportunities around the state, community resources, and the role of school resource officers. Additional panelists include State Representative Ray Pilon, President of the Florida Association of School Resource Officers Lieutenant Tim Enos and President of Dewey & Associates Dewey Caruthers.    

In addition, Deputy Secretary Tim Niermann spoke at the summit during a panel entitled Smarter Coordination for Crossover Youth. During the panel, Tim stated that cross training at the local level would facilitate not only communication but problem solving between DJJ, the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and providers for both agencies that work with crossover youth. Also on the panel were the Honorable James Seals, Senior Judge from the 20th Circuit; Janice Thomas, DCF Assistant Secretary for Child Welfare and Ted Waller, Chief Executive Officer, HEADS USA.

Probation Update

DJJ Circuit 19 Probation Staff partnered with Eckerd’s Project Bridge Program, the Department of Health and the Village Coalition of Youth Activity to participate in a one day crime prevention summit entitled, “A Time 2 CHILL (Choose How I Live Life)” on December 5. This resource fair hosted over 25 vendors who provided health education and services that promote healthy behaviors. This event was marketed to the target population in the northwest Fort Pierce Lincoln Park Community that is an impoverished, high crime area with limited access to these resources.  This event addressed a variety of public safety issues including gang activity, drug and alcohol influence, and poor health habits. The summit consisted of informative lectures, a teen summit, crime reduction programs, and outreach activities.  While there, youth took part in free screenings, enjoyed live entertainment, free food, and the opportunity to win great prizes including a 50-inch plasma television.

I am pleased to share the following success story from the Eckerd Community Connections (Paxen) program: 

In preparation for a legislative meet and greet, Willie Brown and Jontae Del-Llano were nervous. Never in their life had they imagined that they would be dressed so sharp and commended on how well they were doing. You could tell that they believed in themselves and while nervous, were more confident than ever. Willie learned how to tie a tie for the event; he admitted in his speech that prior to Paxen he didn’t even know how to introduce himself let along dress professional and give a speech. Both of them had come a really long way. 

In his speech Jontae stated he couldn’t remember a time he wasn’t getting into trouble. He said Paxen has made him think about things differently, as he put it “no matter how much water the staff put in front of me they can’t make me drink, I have to do that for myself.” And he is, Jontae is scheduled to take his GED on November 30th something that the staff has celebrated from the time he took his TABE to the countless hours in the classroom of continually motivating him. Jontae ended his speech that he is ready for his life to change and isn’t going to look back to all the people, places, and decisions that got him into trouble. 

Willie started his speech with a huge smile, something the Paxen staff would say he comes to programming with every day. Willie shared all that Paxen has helped him achieve including completing 130 community service hours, a firearm safety class, and his increased willingness to attend school every day. Willie has also attended multiple job fairs and obtained all of his vital documents including a Florida identification card. Willie stated Paxen has improved his home life as well, “My mom doesn’t worry about me as much anymore—she knows I am going to get up and go to school and that I’m not getting violated because I am doing what I have to do.” Willie stated changing his life has made him realize that he has to pay it forward, “The best thing I can give someone is trust and respect, even if they have shown you in the past they don’t deserve it…I won’t give up on someone because you all never gave up on me.” 

Both Willie and Jontae are more than half way done with Paxen. Willie stated he wants to be able to take at least one section of his GED before completing the program however is actively applying for jobs in his community. Jontae will begin applying for jobs and completing the rest of his community service hours after he takes his GED. These young men have a lot to be proud of!!

I am pleased to share the following success story from Project Connect in the North Region:  

A youth in the north region’s transition program, Project Connect, who showed great interest in aviation mechanics was recently paired with a life coach (mentor) who is a retired airline aviation mechanic and aviation mechanic instructor.  Life Coach Alan Williams was able to show the youth around his hangar/shop at the Tri-County Airport in Chipley, FL and discuss the nuts and bolts of basic aviation repair and maintenance.  The youth was very interested in the airplane currently being overhauled at the facility and has made plans to return to the facility to get some hands-on experience under the tutelage of his life coach.  Project Connect is helping the youth research and enroll in aviation mechanic vocational courses to begin a career in the aviation field.  In addition, this youth has been volunteering at the local ministry center where he has logged over 70 hours helping the ministry center’s staff manage donations, move inventory in and out of warehousing, and provide maintenance help where needed.  Doug Hemanes, the Director of the Calhoun Liberty Ministry Center, states, “He is an invaluable volunteer for this charitable organization in that he is physically able and willing to help us in some of the most demanding tasks we do here, plus he brings an infectiously positive attitude to the center each day he’s here.”

Circuit 1 Probation staff teamed up with Southwide Baptist Church of Defuniak Springs to distribute dinner boxes to eleven DJJ youth and their families last month. The church donated each of the turkeys for the boxes while our JPOs assisted with the food drive. Secretary Specialist Sylvia Anderson attends Southwide Baptist and was instrumental in obtaining the food to fill the boxes, which were delivered to needy families. All of the families who received boxes were most appreciative.

Circuit 3 Reform Specialist Michelle Galloway participated in a “Prayer Chain for our Community,” on December 6 in Lake City. The event welcomed over twelve local church denominations to show unity between churches in order to pray for the youth, schools, government leaders, and public servants in the local community. Michelle was on hand to distribute brochures to potential volunteers for the DJJ Faith Network. Organizers of the event hope the prayer chain might lead to more discussion involving more community church leaders and the positive impact they can have on the youth they serve.  

Seminole County Probation staff in Circuit 9 held a Family Engagement Night for over eighteen families at the local probation office. These families were served dinner before being separated into groups. ACPO Omar Bohler, Reform Specialist Tracy Olson and JPOs Eric Gaela, Pearl McKahon, Antonio Henry, Julia Rogers and Kayleigh Redoutey hosted the parents as they listened to presentations from the Federation of Families, Chrysalis Health, Youth Move and the Sanford Police Department followed by a question and answer session.  

The youth were divided into teams to play an interactive Jeopardy game which was created by Verlese Pender from Youth Move. JPOS Robyn Worlds, SJPO Walter Jimenez and JPOs Nekeshia Pelham, Frank Marshall and Holly Fernandes kept the youth on task during the game which provided a friendly competition. After the two events, both the parents and youth were given a family engagement survey where they could rate their experience.

JPOS Heather Ferrara, JPOS Mitzi Petty, SJPO Pam Parenti, and JPOs Dennis Chandler, Sheila Hurst and Adam Wiegand from Circuit 12 accompanied several probationary youth to Bradenton Beach to participate in a sand sculpture building competition. All of the youth earned valuable community service hours for their efforts as the probation team came in second place out of twelve teams for their “Hatchlings” sculpture seen above. The competition is an annual event to raise money for Keep Manatee Beautiful. This year’s competition raised $3,458 to support Keep Manatee Beautiful’ s programs for a cleaner, more beautiful community.  The event’s profits will be used to plant native trees and landscaping on Anna Maria Island.

Circuit 17 CPO Cassandra Evans was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Pan-Hellenic Council of Broward County on December 5 at the Lauderdale Lakes Multipurpose Complex. The award was given for Cassandra’s outstanding and dedicated service to both the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and the citizens of Broward County.  Her steadfast commitment to serving others has significantly improved the quality of life of the citizens in her community. 

The Circuit 7 Probation Office held their annual holiday training luncheon on December 11. The luncheon featured guest speaker Dr. Eurmon Hervey from the Catapult Learning Program. Dr. Hervey is also a part of the pipe line to prison initiative for young African American boys through Bethune-Cookman University. In addition, the Circuit honored the following employees for their exceptional work throughout the year: 

 Employee of the 1st Quarter - SJPO Yolanda Massey 

Employee of the 2nd Quarter – JPO Devon Obier 

Employee of the 3rd Quarter – JPO Webster Davis 

Employee of the 4th Quarter – SJPO Mary Mosley and Employee of the Year!

JPOs Deanna Myers, Michael Conville and Nadine Kelly assisted the Flagler County Student Services group with a presentation entitled, “Know the Law,” with students from Indian Trails Middle School in Winter Springs on December 2. JPO Myers spoke with many of the girls at the school who shared their questions and concerns about the law, specifically on the subject of “sexting.”

The Circuit 1 Probation Office in Santa Rosa County participated in their annual Toy Drive in partnership with the local United Way. The toy drive was a joint event that involved all ten staff members and a total of 30 youth. All total, the drive raised $600 in toy donations, which were collected and given to the United Way and will be distributed to those local families in need this Christmas. The event allowed our staff members and the youth to share in the gift of giving and generosity. 

Prevention Update

The PACE Center for Girls programs in Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk and Manatee Counties welcomed our own Delinquency Prevention Specialist Tina Levene to speak during Red Ribbon Week on October 30. Using the topic: “Don’t Give Up, Don’t Give In!” Tina discussed the importance of identifying risk factors, how even when circumstances lead to risky behaviors, that the girls should not give up hope. Girls were reminded that their friends are their future, to be true to themselves and what they want to be. Don’t give into negative peer pressure.  

Each student received a lot of encouragement and a puzzle piece to signify that each of them contributes to the big masterpiece: on one side of the puzzle piece, it was painted to make up the big puzzle together with students from other PACE sites in Pasco, Polk and Manatee counties. But on the other side of the puzzle piece-it was blank: symbolizing that they have the power to change themselves and their future. The girls were reminded that change is possible and just because they may have made past mistakes that does not mean it will define their future. 

The Office of Prevention and Victim Services Headquarters staff adopted a needy family for the Christmas holidays to spread some well-deserved holiday cheer. With the help of DJJ staff member Brittany Condry, the Prevention staff was set up with 34 year-old Jasmine Maddox and her four adopted children. Unfortunately, Ms. Maddox has a chronic medical condition and she is unable to work. With no form of dependable transportation and no steady income, Prevention staff made sure that Ms. Maddox and her children had a Christmas that they deserved.    

Ms. Maddox and her children provided their Christmas list and Prevention elves got busy. Clothing, toys, games, appliances and other items that the family requested were wrapped in beautiful paper with bows and ribbons and delivered to the Maddox household. According to the Prevention delivery team, Ms. Maddox shed tears of joy as they carried the gifts into the house. 

In above photo, a cheerful Jasmine Maddox (center) holds one of the gifts delivered to her by Prevention team members: (from left to right), Juliet Westmoreland, Lucy Swain, Diamond Ragin and Onazina Washington.

Delinquency Prevention Specialist Pat McGhee facilitated a Bridging the GAAP discussion between local youth and law enforcement on November 19 at the Pasco Middle School in Dade City. The G.A.A.P. conversation was an open dialogue between Pasco law enforcement officers and youth on perceptions, stereotypes, attitudes, behaviors and beliefs. This was an opportunity for youth to express to law enforcement their beliefs and misunderstandings. The forum gave attendees the chance to discuss communication and respect for each other. The group also spoke about the influence of social media and other activities.  The panel consisted of 15 youth and 12 law enforcement officers, and included close to 50 people in attendance. 

The PACE Center for Girls of Miami, is continuously putting PACE’s nine-point values and guiding principles into action with the help of the PACE Miami Boutique. PACE uses the nine-point system to encourage and educate girls to develop successful habits. When students exhibit positive behavior or exemplify a guiding principle, they are given a bead attributed to the specific principle. When girls demonstrate negative behavior, it is documented and the PACE counselor works with them to improve their behavior. The values and guiding principles are: Honor the Female Spirit, Focus on Strengths, Act with Integrity and Positive Intent, Embrace Growth and Change, Value the Wisdom of Time, Exhibit Courage, Seek Excellence, Create Partnerships and Invest in the Future. 

At the end of the month, the distributed beads are counted, and the girls can redeem the beads and shop at the small boutique located in the center, called the “PACE Miami Boutique.” The system encourages them to focus on positive habits, and shows them how the negative habits impact their lives. Donations for the boutique come from individuals, partnering organizations, as well as the Miami team members. To learn more about PACE Miami, please visit www.pacecenter.org.

Education Update

Director of Education Julie Orange recently made a presentation during a national webinar hosted by the Council of State Governments Center of Florida and Massachusetts. The webinar focused on improving educational and vocational outcomes for incarcerated youth and was an opportunity to showcase the work that both states are doing to help youth become college and career ready so that they may transition to an appropriate setting after their release. Julie’s PowerPoint presentation focused on the recent legislation written last session that requires the Department of Education to annually assess and evaluate all juvenile justice education programs using student performance data and program performance ratings. The webinar featured over 130 participants.

Detention Update

The Pinellas RJDC held their annual staff holiday luncheon on December 16 at the facility. In addition to the holiday festivities, the facility also held their first annual “King of the Wing,” chicken wing contest. A total of 14 staff members entered the contest which was judged by JDO Sharonza Williams, FA JoAnn Snyder and LPN Ashley McKinley. The winners (shown left) were LPN Angel Cope for the Most Unique Wings, Superintendent Joseph Seeber for the Spiciest Wings and Food Services Director Christy Harris who was crowned “Queen” of the Wings with the Best Overall Wings. Each of the winners received a trophy and a gift card for their efforts. Aside from the chicken wings, staff members enjoyed turkey and a number of different side dishes and desserts.  

Girls at the Brevard RJDC participated in a holiday art program last week at the facility. The girls spent about three hours making decorations for their mods as well as holiday cards for their families. Superintendent Paul Finn made candy canes and holiday music available during the art project as well as some blank cards and envelopes, sketch pads, crayons, markers and colored pencils. After the art project was over, each of the girls who participated received a teddy bear as well as pajamas and slippers. 

When a child takes the time to write to a Superintendent in one of our facilities, it truly makes a statement about the teamwork within a detention center. That feeling was fully felt when Superintendent Dedilia Finlayson from the St. Lucie RJDC received this heart-warming letter from a youth. 

Residential Update

Ho! Ho!  Ho!  Last week at the annual holiday staff meeting held at the Panhandle Area Education Consortium (PAEC) in Chipley, the staff of the Northwest Regional Residential Services team enjoyed making Christmas goodie bags for several regional programs.  The bags were filled with hotel-sized toiletries, adorned with a candy cane, and given to residential programs for inclusion with the gifts that each program presents to their residents this time of year.  

Both of the region’s girl-serving programs—DOVE Academy, operated by Twin Oaks Juvenile Development, Inc., and JoAnn Bridges Academy, operated by Youth Services International, Inc.—received goodie bags that included specialty items just for girls.  In addition, there were enough donated supplies to make goodie bags for the Juvenile Unit for Specialized Treatment (JUST) and the Twin Oaks Academy II programs, both of which are operated by Twin Oaks Juvenile Development, Inc. 

The team created 95 goodie bags from this year’s supplies, which were made possible by the many, many contributions from DJJ staff members who work in all parts of the state.  The goal for 2016 is to make at least the same number of gift bags.  As you and your families travel this coming year, please keep any unused hotel-sized toiletry supplies and send them to the Office of Residential Services Northwest Region

Pictured above are Commitment Management Staff Members Sean Dorsey, Amy Daglish and April Lewis, Regional Director Mary Mills, General Services Liaison Kelvin Sanders, Residential Operations Monitor Dwight Poole and Administrative Assistant Natosha Faul.  Not pictured, but present were Residential Operations Monitor Neil Stier and SMA II Lori Jernigan. 

The advisory board for Duval Academy, a non-secure facility for males, ages 14 to 18, which is operated by Youth Services International, Inc., works with the program’s residents each holiday season to create food and gift baskets for community families who are in need.   

For Thanksgiving, the board members and the boys created more than a dozen decorated gift baskets filled with food and holiday good cheer.  

This annual, seasonal event helps the residents understand the value of helping those who are less fortunate than they are. 

The boys also have the opportunity to talk about gratitude and discuss their feelings about the holidays while they work side by side with the advisory board members.  For those community members who are homebound, the advisory board members delivered the gift baskets.   

Other families visited the program and picked theirs up—like those shown here.

Additionally, the youth at Duval Academy are empowered to pursue vocational skills and to prepare for the workforce.  As shown in these photos, this young man assists in the facility’s kitchen as he earns hours toward his Safe Serve Food Handler Certificate, which he earned on December 9.  He stated that he wishes to pursue culinary arts career after he completes high school in the spring 2016.  

The Boys & Girls Club (BGC) of Tabula Rasa on-site at Juvenile Unit for Specialized Treatment (JUST), a non-secure residential commitment program for males, ages 13 to 17, which is operated by Twin Oaks Juvenile Development, Inc., works with the program in community activities for the residents.  Recently, the youth participated in the Apalachicola Seafood Festival where they displayed the works of art they create through woodworking and welding (shown right).

The residents also assisted in converting the Veteran’s Memorial Park Ghost Train and decorations into the “Veteran’s Memorial Park Christmas Train.”  The students demonstrate their commitment to an organization and gain hours of community service by working with the Veterans Memorial Railroad. The community looks forward to this holiday event—known as the Polar Bear Express—every year with the park open for admission every Friday and Saturday in December.

The JUST students work dozens of hours painting, building, hanging lights, and getting all of the holiday scenes ready for the park’s opening day.  The boys transform the Veteran’s Memorial Park into a winter wonderland visited by thousands of people.

Recently, the staff and residents of the RAM-C (Residential Alternatives for the Mentally Challenged) Program, a non-secure residential commitment program, for males ages 9 to 18, which is operated by Twin Oaks Juvenile Development, Inc., volunteered for Habitat for Humanity of Madison County to help create a house for a local family.   

The boys met the family for whom they were building the house and learned a variety of skills.  This was a great community service experience and a chance for the boys to learn aspects of the construction trades they can consider for careers.  Several students expressed an interest in pursuing a trade in carpentry or general construction.  The Habitat for Humanity project was an awesome opportunity for them to meet a mentor in that field. 

 The young men worked side by side with experienced tradesmen to learn how to build the house.  The students did such an excellent job that the organization has asked that they return to help with construction again.  

 Five youth Champions of the Miami Youth Academy (MYA), a non-secure program for males, ages 14 to 18, which is operated by G4S Youth Services, LLC, participated in the first-ever camping adventure.  The young men were selected based upon each one earning 75 percent or more positive weeks leading up to the event—for a minimum of one month.  

Recreation Therapist S. Flores and Administrative Assistant K. Aguilar coordinated various camping games, storytelling, and of course s’mores and wieners.  The majority of the participants had never experienced camping.  This adventure provided each youth Champion with invaluable outdoor experiences—although modified. 

Each student was equipped with a tent, mattress, and bedding.  Security and supervision were provided by Youth Specialist-II D. Smith and Staff Mentor S. Charles, with oversight by Facility Administrator J. Richardson who expressed his appreciation of the MYA staff and to the Miami-Dade County Public Schools Lead Educator D. Wynn.  Along with other community supporters, they continue to sustain a culture of care by working with the MYA Champions, giving them quality life experiences and life skills opportunities.

Just after Thanksgiving, the MYA Champions were challenged to a contest to make a turkey.  Each student had edible items, such as Rice Krispies® Treats, gummy bears, Skittles®, and veggie sticks, from which the turkey was to be constructed.   

The goal was to make the best-looking turkey from these materials.  Recreation Therapist S. Flores led the activity in groups of eight, providing the young men with instruction and encouragement.  

Five residents of Bartow Youth Academy (BYA), a non-secure program for males, ages 14 to 18, which is operated by G4S Youth Services, LLC, recently volunteered at the Mission Church in Winter Haven, providing two hours each of community service.  They reorganized the food pantry, unloaded trucks containing food and clothing for the needy, and assisted the church staff in categorizing all of the donations.   

The boys returned last week and gave another two hours of community service each by helping with the food pantry organization and serving meals to several needy families.

Prior to performing these community service duties, the young men met with the pastor who explained to them the importance of providing service to those in need.  In turn, the students explained to the pastor about juvenile justice residential commitment and the importance of providing community service as part of making restitution for their actions.

Three of the same boys were invited by PAL Director Tim Abrams to attend the Lakeland PAL (Police Athletic League) annual banquet.  More than 300 guests attended the event, which included guest performances and inspirational words from Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer Willie Horton. 

One of the BYA students also read aloud a poem titled “Letter to My Son” that expresses the importance of fathers providing guidance to their sons. 

Columbus Juvenile Residential Facility (JRF), a non-secure program for males, ages 10 to 18, which is operated by G4S Youth Services, LLC, recently held its Family Fall Festival.  The theme centered on carnival fun time and everyone who came out had a great time with games, lots of food, music, and family fellowship. 

There was lots of laughter as the young men and their family members took turns trying to dunk the Columbus JRF staff members in the dunk tank.

Did someone say Fall Festival?  Charles Britt Academy did!  Last week, the youth and staff at Charles Britt Academy, a non-secure program for males, ages 14 to 18, which is operated by Youth Services International, Inc., celebrated their first-ever Fall Festival.   

The festival included bounce houses, cotton candy, popcorn, snow cones, corndogs, hotdogs, a flag football game, a basketball tournament, and tons of fun. 

At this time of year, residential commitment can be especially difficult for our youth.  The administrative team of the Charles Britt Academy added this event to keep spirits up and motivate the boys to maintain positive behaviors. 

This week, the administrative team asked the residents what activity would make their stay in commitment a bit more pleasant during the holiday season.  The consensus of the boys—a quick response, too—was to go roller-skating.  Although there were far more falls than anything else, the most powerful eraser couldn’t wipe the smiles off of the boys’ faces.
