National Directory of Juvenile Restitution Programs 1987.
Warner, Jean Shumway, Ed.; Burke, Vincent, Ed.
This directory was produced by the Restitution Education, Specialized Training, and Technical Assistance (RESTTA) program to facilitate and promote the dissemination of information about restitution and community service programming, and to facilitate professional interaction among persons with professional interests in restitution and community service. It contains names, addresses, and descriptions of 296 juvenile restitution and community service programs located throughout the United States. Data includes information on the types of services provided, when the programs and particular service components began, and where they are situated administratively. Details about program operations are contained in brief narratives provided by the programs. Six of the programs listed were designated as National Models by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. The introduction to the directory discusses background issues, states represented, types of restitution, age of programs, and the organization of the directory. Following a short listing of programs and their identifying characteristics, descriptions of restitution programs are provided alphabetically by state, and by cities within the states. The directory concludes with a description of RESTTA and RESTTA services and a list of restitution resources which includes RESTTA consortium members, federal juvenile restitution contact, and RESTTA technical assistance providers listed by state.
