Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $298,906)

The Hoopa Valley Tribe aims to improve the juvenile justice system through the expansion of probation services. This project will serve the 50 to 100 children annually (6-17 years old) who are cited into the Hoopa Valley Tribal Court and ordered to participate in probation monitored services. The project will take place on school campuses, in the court house, and in various after school activities and will provide expanded intervention services and indigenous justice strategies for youth. The tribe will use a variety of performance measures to assess whether project objectives are met, including, but not limited to: percentage of youth, families, and staff satisfied with program; percentage of cases in which extended family members or community members participate in the case resolution; and percentage of cases in which the juveniles' self report a greater feeling of community connectedness than they felt prior to their probation period.
