Youth & Family Resource Centers

The Youth and Family Resource Center (YFRC) is an early intervention, multidisciplinary day treatment program developed to prevent chronic recidivism among juvenile offenders.

The YFRCs serve Young juvenile offenders….placed on formal probation who have significant problems in many areas including family, school, substance abuse, and involvement in delinquent behavior…and their families.

In studies conducted by Orange County Probation, this group of juvenile offenders was identified as being at the greatest risk of becoming repeat offenders. Findings of these studies revealed that a small proportion (8%) of juvenile offenders accounted for over half of the recidivism.

Referred to as the 8% Population, characteristics of these 8%ers included
· 15 or younger at their first referral to probation
· More likely to be declared a ward on lst referral
· Presence of at least 3 of the following Risk Factors
  · Significant Family Problems (Abuse, neglect, criminal family members, and/or lack of parental supervision or control)
  · Significant Problems at School
  · Drug/Alcohol Abuse Problems
  · Delinquency Problems (gang association, runaway pattern, stealing pattern)

The YFRCs provide services to these 8%ers and their families using a team approach in a One-Stop Center.

Each YFRC serves 60 to 75 8% participants at any given time…and over a one year time period, a Center provides services for up to 150 8% youth & their families

The long-term goal of the YFRC program is to intervene successfully in the lives of these high-risk youth to reduce the number that go on to become repeat offenders.

Research results show the YFRCs to be most effective with the younger 8%er (15 years or under) in the following areas
- Reducing new law violation behavior and holding youth accountable
- Fewer days spent in custody
- Improving school outcomes (attendance, academic)
- Reducing substance abuse problems and other risk factors.

8% ROPP Study: Change in Risk Factors Program Entry to Exit

Less crimes committed = fewer victims, greater public safety and ultimately less cost to society.

The YFRC program model has gained national recognition as a “best practice” early intervention program.

Probation implemented the first one-stop YFRC center in 1996 in North Orange County with state demonstration grant funds.

With funding from state and federal sources, five additional sites were up and running by 2002, serving every major region in the county (2 North, 1 West, 1 Central, 2 South)

County map with initial 6 YFRC sites, no additional text available

Over the last decade, YFRC’s have provided services to over 1,300 high-risk juvenile offenders. For every youth participant, it is estimated that an average of three individuals -- the 8% youth & 2 family members -- receive YFRC services.

Why are we making this presentation?

Budget reductions at the state and federal level reduced the available funding stream for prevention and treatment type programs.

By mid 2004, four of the six YFRC program sites had been closed due to lack of funding.

County map with remaining 2 YFRC sites, no additional text available

Recognizing the importance of the YFRCs in providing intensive early intervention, the Probation Department included the restoration of these sites as the top strategic priority in the Department’s financial plan.

Included in the Department’s Fiscal Year 2006-07 budget is the $1.5 million to restore the Central YFRC (Santa Ana).

First implemented in mid-1998, the Central YFRC served over 350 8%ers before its closure in June 2004.

With the restoration of funds, the Probation Department and its partners will once again be able to provide YFRC services to 8% youthful offenders and their families from Santa Ana and nearby communities.

One-Stop collaborative programs like the Youth and Family Resource Center targeting high-risk juvenile offenders are expensive.

However, YFRC costs must be considered against the social costs of crime to society.

Recent estimates of those social costs support that dollars invested early on with these high-risk juvenile offenders have the potential to save between $1.7 to 2.3 million per offender if we can successfully keep them from a lifetime of crime and drug abuse.
