Case Management Detail

Case Managers
WWCMO Case Managers meet with the adjudicated youth and family to collect information to develop a plan aimed at assisting the youth in his/her delinquency rehabilitation, often while the youth is in detention. The Case Managers develop a Treatment Plan for each youth to identify needs and strengths and to develop a Balanced and Restorative Justice Plan that will allow youth to make amends and to give back to their communities. Social work and criminal justice professionals work with youth and their families, to follow through with established goals and recommendations in order to make a successful return to the community. By virtue of the Courtís order and a risk rating process, some youth are placed in residential delinquency programs. Their progress is monitored by the Case Managers to assure that needed services are provided, and to address issues that are interfering with the youth making gains. Youth re-enter the community when they make sufficient progress to warrant the Courtís approval of their de-escalation and the Courtís acceptance of the re-entry plan. When youth return to the community, they are involved in a number of activities aimed at continuing their rehabilitation, including counseling, drug treatment, tutoring and job readiness activities. They are closely monitored regarding school attendance, receive regular urine screens and are monitored to assure compliance with family rules and WWCMO requirements.

Community Teams
Each of WWCMO communities has developed individual teams to exchange information and assist in the monitoring and progress of every youth. The community teams consist of elected officials and other members of the community including local law enforcement, school personnel, human service personnel and CMO Case Managers. The youth are required to present to their community team at least three times while involved in the court and WWCMO system. The youth present information about their offense, treatment plans, goals for success and plan to make amends to the community. The final presentation outlines how the youth completed their amends plan, providing proof and outcome information. They also state why they are ready for court termination and what they plan to do to remain successful within the community.

Re-Entry Team Monitors
The Re-Entry Team monitors all community-based youth at home, school or work, conducting drug screens and providing an additional support staff and resource for youth and families in the community. The Re-Entry Team assists the Case Managers in the electronic monitoring and drug testing of the youth and in helping them adjust and learn to be successful in the community.
