Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $400,000)

The Tolowa Dee-ni' Juvenile Healing to Wellness Court will address the following inter-related problems: a high prevalence of alcohol use among Tribal juveniles charged with crimes in the Tolowa Dee-ni’ area; the risk of recidivism among non-violent juvenile offenders and the potential escalation of their re-offenses to violent crimes; the need for an intensive, coordinated and long-term approach to juvenile defendants charged in the Tolowa Tribal Court; and, a need for more culturally-appropriate, community-based support for Tribal youth who are often distanced from culture and community due to poverty, geographic isolation, or family or social dysfunction.
