The CARS program is a wraparound service focused on youth involved in the Juvenile System including the Office of Juvenile Affairs and Juvenile Bureau.  Referrals are completed by probation officers or OJA workers and submitted to Mid-Del Youth and Family Center.

The mission of the CARS program is to provide therapeutic counseling and rehabilitation services to youth and their families who are referred by the Juvenile Services Unit. These services are offered in a helpful environment that may include the client's home.

Goal and objectives are developed by the client and incorporate the services stated on the juvenile's individual service plan provided by the Juvenile Service worker.

Cars programming consists of traditional outpatient therapy services driven by an Office of Juvenile Affairs approved plan, which addresses the therapeutic needs of youth who have committed law violations. All services are provided with the goal of supporting the recovery or stabilization of the persons served, reducing symptoms, restoring function and preventing additional functional impairment.
