What We Do

Juvenile Rehabilitation

Juvenile Rehabilitation (JR) (formerly called JRA) serves Washington State's highest-risk youth. Youth may be committed to JR custody by any county juvenile court. The juvenile courts follow prescribed sentencing guidelines to determine which youth will be committed to JR. These youth typically have committed many lower-level offenses or have committed a serious crime.

Office of Juvenile Justice

The Office of Juvenile Justice (OJJ) is the designated office within DSHS that is responsible for monitoring Washington State’s compliance with the federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act.  Additionally, OJJ provides staff support to the Washington State Partnership Council on Juvenile Justice (WA-PCJJ).

The WA-PCJJ’s mission is to promote partnerships and innovations that improve outcomes for juvenile offenders and their victims, to build family and community capacity to prevent delinquency, and to provide analysis and expertise to state and local policymakers.  The WA-PCJJ provides grant opportunities, training, technical assistance, and research regarding best practices supporting system improvement within the juvenile justice system.
