Be a Part of the Hinds County Juvenile Justice Convening on Feb. 24

As noted on their Facebook event page, the Hinds County Children’s Coalition “has been working to empower communities to lead the development of diversion, intervention, and prevention efforts involving young people at risk of juvenile justice involvement, child protection services involvement, and their families.”

Families as Allies is a partner in the grant from the Annie E. Casey Foundation that makes this work possible.

From the grant application: “The Hinds County Children’s Coalition, in collaboration with Hinds County Youth Court, aims to create a unified platform that addresses the comprehensive needs of children and youth in our community impacted by the juvenile justice system in Hinds County. The platform will engage in convenings to develop impactful diversion programming for youth and families by supporting a wide range of wraparound services and initiatives, empowering the community to drive prevention and diversion efforts championed by the Hinds County Youth Court.”

As a partner, we at Families as Allies encourage you to be a part of this first large convening of 2024 on February 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mississippi College School of Law (151 E. Griffith Street) in downtown Jackson. We especially encourage parents and youth to attend, as well as professionals and community members who work with young people and families,

From the Facebook event: “Stakeholders, providers, community and faith-based leaders, and community members are invited. Please share with your networks and encourage registration by calling 601.985.3000. Bring your ideas, brainstorm solutions, and commit to action!”
