Council aims for fewer child offenders
The Catawba County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council aims to better families and the communities in which they live — one child at a time.
The JCPC is mandated to provide funding for services to help at-risk youth and their families.
The council meets those needs through:
-Identifying youth's problems and needs;
-Determining what programs exist to meet those needs;
-Recommending support and continued existence of effective programs;
-Monitoring and reporting programs designed to prevent
institutionalization through alternative, community-based youth programs.
