Status Offender Project: County Data Reports--Buncombe County.
Deimel, Betty; And Others
The first of three reports on a North Carolina project to help counties plan community based status offender programs describes a statewide needs assessment to collect information about the needs of status offenders and youth at risk of entering the juvenile justice system. A questionnaire covered situational and behavioral problems experienced along with questions on the intervention that would meet the specified needs. Data are reported in terms of problems experienced and program recommendations. Estimated program effectiveness scores are listed. Problems are grouped according to the following six needs: acceptable social and interpersonal values, appropriate education, appropriate living situations, mental health, physical health, and recreation. Program recommendations are classified as treatment, crisis intervention, or prevention types. (CL)
