Our Mission: 

JJC is a non-profit organization whose mission is to work individually and in partnership with other organizations to ensure that Ohio’s juvenile justice system – from prevention through involvement with the adult court – works effectively to increase positive outcomes for youth, families and communities. JJC supports efforts to reduce youth’s involvement with the juvenile justice system that are community-based, research informed, culturally appropriate, and to put all of Ohio’s youth on a path to success.

Our Vision:

 We envision a juvenile justice system that benefits all Ohioans by helping the system better respond to youth and community needs to achieve long-term success, stability, and safety.
