The Juvenile Administration Division receives County and State (JJC) funding to administer programs for the Passaic County Family Court, Youth Detention, and Juvenile Detention Alternative Programs. Additionally, this division operates the Youth Services Commission (YSC) which serves as the planning body for the development of programs for court-involved, at-risk and low-income youth. Programs address needs at each point in the continuum of care, prevention, diversion, detention alternatives, disposition, and re-entry. Referrals for these services generally come from Family Court, schools, youth case managers, community providers, and probation departments, parents and/or guardians, and the community. For more information about these services, please contact the Juvenile Administrator.
