    3. History of Crossover Youth Practice Model in Douglas County • Douglas County is part of the first cohort along with Broomfield, Larimer, and Morgan Counties, which began in August 2011. • The second cohort includes Jefferson, Rio Grande, Alamosa and Conejos counties. • A new cohort for 2013 is being planned for additional Colorado Counties to participate. • Technical Support with Georgetown University has ended for our cohort. • Douglas completed 6 site visits and 24 cluster calls for support during the implementation process.

    4. Goals of the Practice Model • Reduce the number of youth placed in out-of-home care, • Reduce the use of congregate care, • Reduce the disproportionate representation of children of color, and • Reduce the number of youth being dually adjudicated.

    5. Additional Goals • Increased communication amongst agencies. • Increased cooperation, coordination and integration of services provided by Douglas County Department of Human Services, Juvenile Justice and any other youth serving agencies. • Increased youth and family engagement. • Increased collaboration in joint assessment, case planning and case supervision.

    6. Action Steps to Achieve Goals • Consistent Court Oversight: • One magistrate handling both Delinquency and Dependency and Neglect cases. • Avoiding inconsistent orders and multiple hearings. • Increased Collaboration: • Coordinated joint case planning with families and agencies. • Family engagement through joint case planning. • Improved Service Delivery: • Expedited service delivery. • Identifying the right service at the right time.
