Juvenile Services Community Service Program

The Ocean County Juvenile Services Community Service Program works in conjunction with the RAISE Program. This means that RAISE participants are given the opportunity to begin their Community Service hours while attending the program.

We also provide supervised onsite Community Service for Ocean County Juveniles that have been sentenced by various courts and judicial committees. Assist in locating, monitoring and recording of, offsite location for juveniles throughout their community, placing participants at foodbanks, churches and nonprofit organizations.
