PINS Prevention (Over 11)

PINS Prevention (Over 11)

The goal of Jefferson County’s PINS Prevention Program, operated by the Children’s Home in conjunction with the Department of Social Services and the Family Court system, is to avoid out-of-home placement and family disruption in cases of serious youth misbehavior. Participation is voluntary. The programs provide case management services to the entire family of identified, at-risk youth over the age of 11.

New York State defines a Person in Need of Supervision (PINS) as “a child under the age of 18 who does not attend school or behaves in a way that is dangerous or out of control, or often disobeys his or her parents, guardians or other authorities.” All PINS proceedings are heard in Family Court.
