St. Charles awarded contract for new Juvenile Reentry Coordination Services program. (December 15, 2009)
Jericho Resources, Inc. is pleased to congratulate its client, St. Charles Youth & Family Services, on being awarded a contract to administer a newly established Reentry Coordination Services program for juvenile offenders. After a thorough third-party panel review of Request For Proposal (RFP) responses from a number of organizations, St. Charles’ proposal was recommended to implement this new initiative. That recommendation was accepted by the Milwaukee County Delinquency & Court Services Division and was ratified by the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors. As a result, St. Charles Youth & Family Services will work closely with adjudicated youth who have been placed in one of Wisconsin’s state-operated juvenile correctional facilities in order to prepare them for leaving state custody, returning to the community, and avoiding further involvement with the juvenile correctional system. St. Charles Youth & Family Services has been contracted to provide Reentry Coordination Services during 2010. However, the agreement may be extended for up to two additional years before the County must seek competitive bids again.
