Justice Services - Youth

Gulfstream Goodwill industries offers several programs for youth who have interacted with the justice system. The goal of these programs is to empower at-risk youth to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their personal, current and future potential.

Supervised Release Program
The Supervised Release (SR) Program is funded through Palm Beach County Youth Services and includes Home Detention and Intensive Home Detention. This program allows participants, ages eight to 18, who would otherwise be court ordered to remain secure in the juvenile detention center (DJJ) to be redirected to their own community with support and supervision.

The program will reduce the number of youths in detention, deter future criminal activity and assist the youth in being in compliance with the court ordered rules of supervision.

Case Manager will provide comprehensive case management which includes home detention monitoring services for youth, youth personal development plan, support services, linkage to community resources for the youth and family and pro-social activities.

Supervised Release program will assist the youth by assessing their needs and providing individual services and resources to meet the needs and motivate the youth to set and accomplish goals for success.
