Community Services Unit
The Community Services Unit members include but are not limited to Juvenile Court Mediators, Liaisons, Mental Health Liaisons, Family in Need of Services (FINS) Probation Officers and Juvenile Court Guides.
The Juvenile Court offers a staffing called a Dependency Prevention Staffing. The staffing allows anyone with specific concerns or questions concerning a child, teen and/or family challenges (for example: behavior problems, truancy, chronic runaway, incorrigibility, drug use, etc.) to address these issues with representatives from several different agencies in an effort to assist the family in finding options for services. These services could include finding an educational advocate, parent support groups, parenting classes on how to parent teens, individual and family counseling to name a few. A child or teen does not have to be court involved to have a staffing. The staffings are open to everyone. Staffings are available at the Southeast Facility on Tuesday afternoons and at the Durango facility on Thursday afternoons to discuss the child and family concerns. The goal is to enhance communication and promote cooperation among all professionals and family members who are responsible for the welfare of a child. For more information or to set a staffing, please call 602-506-4055.
