Intensive Supervision & Surveillance Program - Travis County

Our Intensive Supervision Program is funded by Travis County Juvenile Probation as an alternative to detention and out-of-home placement for youth ages 10-17 years old. The average number of days each youth stayed in this program is 50, much longer than the San Antonio program described above, which accounts for greater impact.

2008 Program Outcomes:

  • 47% increase in the mental and emotional health of clients
  • 68% improvement to relationship with parents/guardians
  • 49% improvement in relationship with teachers/other authority figures
  • 64% increase in clients’ coping skills
  • 51% increase in problem-solving skills
  • 67% improvement in school attendance
