Prevention & Intervention

Community Intervention Center (CIC)

Community Intervention Center is a 24-hour intervention program for young people who have committed a misdemeanor or status offense. Our partnership with the City of Oklahoma City and surrounding law enforcement agencies allows officers to get back to the community sooner and provides a youth-appropriate, safe environment and consequence for young people. The CIC provides:

  • Youth appropriate intake process
  • Safe 24-hour intervention facility
  • Identification of and connection to resources for the youth and families to address and resolve issues that resulted in the arrest, and any other needs the youth and families have

Skills Education Program (SEP)

When bad decisions result in consequences such as getting into trouble with the law, it negatively impacts the youth and their families. Everyone deserves a chance to learn from their mistakes and that is exactly what the Skills Education Program provides for young people and their parents. A parent/guardian and the youth who has been arrested for the first time, is having trouble in school, or has other behavioral issues that need to be addressed, attend this 16-hour program together. The curriculum enables parents and youth to develop skills in the areas of:

  • Communication
  • Anger management
  • Conflict resolution
  • Problem-solving
  • Decision-making

 Jumping from Risk to Opportunity & Connection (JROC) 

Services are designed to assist young people and their families with adjusting to life after time in a detention or other secure residential facility. The services enable our clients to resolve issues that led them to be in placement in the first place. More than 96% avoid re-offending who are engaged in the program. Each JROC client is supported by a network of dedicated staff who provide:

  • Intensive counseling
  • Life skills training and practice
  • Mentoring
  • Crisis intervention
  • Positive, supportive relationships
