Families First Wyoming's Family Intervention Team has worked extensively with the Juvenile Justice System in Wyoming including Municipal and District courts, Child Protection System(CPS), Child in Need of Supervision(CHINS) Petitions and Deliquincies. Our goal is to offer youth and families support as they navigate the system including Court appearances, Multi Disciplinary Team (MDT) meetings, Foster Care, Probation, and Out of Home Placements. Our team has years of experience that can guide and support youth and families in choices and decisions that can make the time spent in the juvenile justice system as short as possible. We will work with all systems involved with your family and coordinate meetings and services efficiently for each family's individual needs.
It is important to note that we are not advocates - our goal is to support youth and families to advocate for themselves. The court system can feel overwhelming and intimidating- so families can count on the team at Families First Wyoming for support in building skills and confidence to advocate for themselves.
