The YSAC is to serve as the mechanism to develop a responsive, accessible and integrated system of care for youth and young adults (ages 0-21 years) with special social/emotional needs and their families, as well as juveniles (0-18 years) charged or adjudicated delinquent. This should be achieved through the involvement of parents, consumers and child serving agencies.
The YSAC will provide a forum where the system of services for children with special social/emotional needs can be developed, reviewed, revised and/or redirected through a collaborative decision-making process to promote optimal service provided in the least restrictive setting possible. YSAC will also provide the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the juvenile justice service system.
Members are appointed annually by the Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders without pay. YSAC should represent the entire child-serving system such as mental health, child welfare, health, education, corrections, juvenile justice, and developmental disabilities. The YSAC should also reflect the natural family supports such as community-based organizations, churches, synagogues and family members and neighbors. They should also reflect a racial/ethnic balance of the target population. Every effort should be made to include this broad-based representation and the YSAC should be able to document how they have tried to achieve this goal.
