Ada County Juvenile Court ServicesACJCS is one of the finest juvenile courts in the country. Its mission is to provide professional services that build, reinforce, and sustain skills to enhance the lives of youth and families. As mandated by the 1995 Juvenile Corrections Act, we practice the Balanced Approach to juvenile services. The Balanced Approach requires that court staff give equal consideration to methods for holding a juvenile accountable, assessing and implementing ways to ensure protection of the community, and assisting a young person to develop pro-social skills. Prevailing over this methodology is the Victim’s Rights Amendment to the Idaho Constitution, which requires the court to provide equal or greater services to victims’ needs for restorative justice than to offenders’ court-ordered services for accountability and rehabilitation."Interns provide tutoring to the students and assist in the classroom."

is a program designed to address and reduce the number of homeless families in the Treasure Valley.

The CATCH model is based on the idea that the sum of community parts can do more than individual pieces. For example; government agencies and business provide the financial support for program administration; and
business & faith-based organizations provide money and resources for the housing and basics like furniture and cookware.
It follows the Housing First model of sheltering people by creating permanent housing instead of
focusing on temporary solutions: if people have a home, they are more likely to succeed with support
services like job training, welfare benefits and so on. Intensive case management is undergone over the 6 months of rent-free housing.

first, finding and developing faith-based partners for the program.

Hands of Hope*Business overview and history- The vision began in 1992 when a local health care worker became frustrated with the disposal of useable, often new, medical supplies and equipment. The idea of Hands of Hope was born through her persistence in inquiring whether she could obtain some of those usable materials being sent to the trash and send them overseas to third world countries. Through her local church she was able to arrange for the shipment of boxes to medical missionaries in Swaziland and Papua New Guine. By 1996 the small group of volunteers realized a more formal organization was necessary to carry on the vision. In that year Hands of Hope Northwest was incorporated as a 501c3 not-for-profit charitable and humanitarian organization in the state of Idaho. Since 1996 Hands of Hope Northwest has shipped 59 containers of medical supplies worth over 29 million dollars to twenty-seven countries. We have also provided supplies for many medical professionals who were going on mission trips. The local loan ministry began in 2003 when we realized that there are many people in our community who cannot afford to rent or buy medical equipment needed for home care. Fewer than fifty items were loaned in 2003. This number grew to 253 items in 2006 and 828 items in 2010!We have also donated medical equipment to churches, civic organizations, schools, shelters, and other groups needing the use of equipment for extended periods. The value of these items over the past five years is over $220,000.Internship Duties: I will be working alongside a wide variety of individuals towards the common goal of providing the underprivileged with medical supplies, medical aid, and anything else available.
