  1. Program Description
    The Office of Juvenile Justice Delinquency and Prevention has released funding to states to implement evidence-based strategies to address the unmet needs of at-risk or delinquent youth through a continuum of delinquency prevention programs for juveniles who have had or who are likely to have contact with the juvenile justice system. With a focus on the rural community, this program concentrates on helping youth avoid involvement in delinquency by reducing risk factors and enhancing protective factors in their schools, communities, and families. The Rural Youth Services Enhanced (RYSE) Program is a new program designed by the Illinois Department of Human Services to address the lack of access to mental health services and social services for youth in rural communities who are involved or at-risk of being involved in the juvenile justice system. RYSE was designed to not only support the families in need of these services, but also to support the social service agencies needing resources to provide these vital services. IDHS is sought applications to increase access to mental health and social services for youth in rural Alexander, Gallatin, Hardin, Pulaski and Saline counties who are involved or at-risk of being involved in the juvenile justice system.
