Mission Statement

The boards make recommendations to the juvenile court with the goals of providing safe, permanent homes to endangered children and of reducing recidivism among juvenile offenders.

Volunteers MUST BE PERMANENT RESIDENTS of DOUGLAS COUNTY. Volunteers must complete approximately 15 hours worth of training.
