The Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) operates within a culture where families are respected and valued and where their needs are understood, in addition as those of their child. It involves and them in the juvenile justice process their child is going through, informs them about what to expect in the juvenile justice process, includes them in decisions, educates them about available resources, and empowers them to achieve and sustain long-term success for their child. It asks what their individual needs are, provides or connects them to appropriates resources, and evaluates how well they felt they were served as partners in the care of their child.
Family Engagement is vital to DJJ’s efforts to reform the juvenile justice system by achieving long-term, positive outcomes for the youth served in the juvenile justice system. The more we do to support, engage and strengthen these families, the better outcomes our children and families, the stronger and safer communities will be in Florida. ALL families and youth should be treated with dignity and respect, provided open and timely communication and encouraged to participate in the treatment of their child.
