This Center for Juvenile Justice Reform paper was designed to provide a framework for jurisdictions to utilize in better serving youth known to both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. The paper is intended to improve understanding of how to prevent youth from crossing over between systems and ensure that all youth who are served by both systems experience them in a manner that provides for the youth’s safety, well being, and permanence while ensuring public safety.
