About Juvenile Justice Reform
This program is a collaborative effort (to divert families from further court and DCS involvement) between TN Voices for Children, the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Department, the Montgomery, Robertson and Sumner county Juvenile Courts. The JJR program is a strength-based and family-driven program that supports children, youth and families involved in the Juvenile Justice system. In the JJR program, a Family Support Provider (FSP) and Youth and Family Therapist (YFT) meets weekly with both youth and parents to help them identify strength-based goals that address issues that may be contributing to the youth’s court involvement.
