Philadelphia—An innovative program in Santa Cruz County, California, keeps juvenile offenders at home with their families when possible. It provides day treatment centers where repeat offenders attend school, receive help for mental and/or substance abuse disorders, undergo counseling, and participate in art therapy and recreational activities.
