The TCOOMI Youth and Family Program — Juvenile Justice

The TCOOMI Youth and Family Program provides services for juvenile offenders who are on probation or parole in Dallas County. The aim of the program is to provide intensive, community-based family counseling to “at-risk” youth in order to prevent an out-of-home incarceration.

Families participate in the program for 4 to 6 months, and during this time serve as part of team comprised of a parole/probation officer, therapist, and mentor. Services include individual and family counseling, skills training, intensive case management services, and psychiatric services.

During the course of treatment, the probation/parole officer, mentor, and counselor will meet with the family 3 to 5 times per week. During these meetings, the family will receive individual and family counseling, assistance in navigating the juvenile justice system, and help accessing community entities such as schools and public assistance agencies. The team also provides 24-hour coverage for emergency situations.

To be eligible for the TCOOMI Youth and Family Program, a youth must be on probation or parole in Dallas County, have at least 6 months remaining on probation or parole, and be referred for the service by the youth’s probation/parole officer.
