State. It spans from the lush forested Cascade Mountains to the upper Yakima River Valley plains and

It is the mission of the Juvenile Court Services to develop and influence people, policies, and programs that positively impact the community and make a difference in the lives of the youth and families we serve.
Juvenile Court Services values keeping kids in the community where they are better served. We value equity, inclusivity, and justice.
It is our vision to significantly reduce the use of secure confinement, and to near eliminate the use of detention for probation violations, by developing strong and effective alternatives that support youth and families, promote behavior change, provide accountability, and keep our community safe.
As a team, we commit to collaboration, communication, growth, follow-through, initiative, integrity, leadership, professionalism, safety, and security.
Juvenile Court Services programs address both offending and at risk youth.
Juvenile Court Services affiliates with governmental, professional and non-profit organizations
that share its mission and values and add strength to the fulfillment of its mission
