Serving Louisiana’s Youth
OJJ promotes a multidisciplinary approach to treating youth through a continuum of care. A unique service plan is developed for each youth in our custody or supervision. Our process includes Assessing Needs, Coordinating Services and Utilizing Programs that Work.
Engaged family members that help juveniles throughout all stages of the juvenile justice system can improve their youth's mental health, reduce behavioral problems, provide motivation, and lower the rate of recidivism. Your efforts matter.
