About the Facility

Located in the northern panhandle, the Brooke/Hancock Youth Reporting Center serves both status offenders and youth who have been adjudicated delinquent.  This Center offers an 8-to-12-week pre-petition diversion program and has collaborated with the Supreme Court as a service provider for Juvenile Drug Court.  The core focus of the program is centered on youth who are post-petition.  They are assigned a program track that lasts 4-6 months, depending on the needs of the youth as determined by knowledge of personal history from collateral information and from assessments administered during initial interviews.   Individual and family therapy is provided by a Masters Level Therapist and is available for youth in the regular program.  Supportive counseling and psychoeducational groups are provided by Corrections Counselors.  Topics include:

  • Decision Making
  • Bullying
  • Substance Use Prevention and Education
  • Anger Management
  • Conflict Management
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Life Skills Training
  • Community Service
  • Budgeting and Money Management
  • Job Readiness and Job Search / Referral Services
