University-Community Based Group Home for Youth. A Proposal. Working Draft.
Tolliver, James H.
The state of Maryland, and more specifically the Maryland State Department of Juvenile Services Administration, is confronted with the problem of finding homes for juveniles. The problem is basically centered around the issues of funding and geography in that the majority of citizens do not want institutions in their neighborhood. In an attempt to solve both of these problems, officials at Morgan State University and the Department of Juvenile Services (DJSA) explored the idea of a university-based group home. This proposal was written to serve as a guide for further planning and implementation of the proposed group home with joint funding from DJSA, and the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration, (LEAA). The proposal discusses the causes of juvenile delinquency and the need for delinquent and/or neglected youth to be removed from their home environment. The concept and principles for developing and operating a group home for youth are advanced. Details of the proposed staffing, responsibilities, group living activities, and program management are explained. (Author/MLF)
