The Parent Peer Support Program is a partnership with the NYC Department of Probation to provide parents of system-involved youth with “peer coaches” to guide them through their child’s involvement in the juvenile justice system. CCFY trains the parents of system-involved youth to serve as “peer coaches” for parents who are currently navigating the juvenile justice system. The initiative aims to reduce family-related Violations of Probation (i.e. “youth beyond parental control”), thereby reducing reliance on detention and placement. The Parent Peer Support Program grew out of CCFY’s advocacy for juvenile justice systems to become more responsive to family needs. CCFY’s involvement in the 2012 National Families Report led to the convening of a Probation/Parent Association in which senior members of the NYC Department of Probation met with CCFY’s family members over a 6-month period to strategize on ways to respond to the report’s recommendations. Families clearly articulated a desire and demand for peer support and in late 2013, the NYC Department of Probation responded by establishing funding for a Parent Support Program. In the Parent Support Program, Peer Coaches are on site at the Bronx Family Court Probation Office from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday to help families navigate the juvenile justice system. Peer Coaches connect families to parent support groups and family strengthening programming, and are also available on call during evenings and weekends to support parents in crisis situations.
