Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
Since 2013, New Morning Youth & Family Services (New Morning) has been providing counseling and therapeutic services to Clients of the Probation Department (Probation). Probation wishes to contract with New Morning for additional services, specifically 24-hour Emergency Youth Shelter.

Probation desires and has the duty to provide protection in the form of emergency shelter/foster care for youth in the juvenile justice system who have been ordered to foster care by the Superior Court, and whom the County takes or accepts into its charge to ensure their safety and well-being pursuant to the provisions of the California Welfare and Institutions Code ("WIC") Section 625, 626(b), 725, 727 and 16500.

Bed days at New Morning’s Shelter would be an alternative to detention or as respite for a few clients per year.

ALTERNATIVES
Should the Board decline to approve this recommendation, Probation will have difficulty meeting the occasional, though usually immediate, needs of certain clients in need of shelter.
