Ross County Court of Common Pleas
Physical Address: 14 S. Paint St, Suite 69
Introduction to the IV-E Program
Juvenile court has had a high degree of involvement and interest in community programs and collaborative ventures that support youth and families. The court has initiated diversion programs and fostered alternative strategies to divert youth from court sanctions and out of home placements. With dwindling budgets and increased pressures to serve unruly and delinquent youth the court has identified alternative resources to administer justice, rehabilitate juveniles, promote public safety and provide opportunities to strengthen families.
In September of 2006, Ross County Juvenile Court became a certified Title IV-E entity under the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Through Title IV-E, the federal government will reimburse a percentage of local dollars spent for services currently being provided by county juvenile courts. The juvenile court IV-E staff assesses youth for community risk, level of care and broker a range of services for youth and families. When necessary the IV-E program will assume care and custody of unruly and delinquent youth and ensure education, comprehensive mental and behavioral health intervention services, and treatment are provided to youth and families to promote family preservation. IV-E staff also:
|IVE Probation Officer|
|Substance Abuse Counselor|
