The mission of the Clackamas County Juvenile Department is to provide equitable juvenile justice, family support, intervention, and reformation services to youth so they can repair harm to victims, experience positive change, and contribute to a safe, healthy, and secure community.
Youth And Families
Targeted interventions hold youth accountable, teach youth new skills, while simultaneously working to restore victims and community.
In collaboration with our partners, we enable youth offenders to address harm caused in their own communities as a result of their offense.
We offer Project Payback services primarily to hold youth offenders accountable to pay back their victims for any financial losses resulting from the youth’s criminal behavior.
It is our intent to gain an understanding of the harm victims have experienced and to have those impacts help shape how the offender is held accountable.
