Juvenile Justice Programs
TRIAD is a consortium by the Harris County Protective Services, the Juvenile
Probation Department and The Harris Center. TRIAD provides consistent
comprehensive residential and supportive services to youth in the Juvenile
Justice Department. Many of these youths have experienced trauma,
lived in unsafe environments and have mental health needs that require
crisis intervention, individual or group counseling, family counseling and
emergency shelter. TRIAD services consist of the Children’s Evaluation Unit
at the Juvenile Detention Center in Downtown, and the Children’s Mental
Health services unit at the Youth Services Center at Chimney Rock.
The TRIAD Children’s Evaluation Unit expanded intake availability to families:
Instead of traveling to downtown, our families can now receive services at
the Youth Center on Chimney Rock.
Of the 35,915 youth served in the Juvenile Justice Program,
99% were re-integrated
back with their family and in the community.
