Station House Adjustment
The Station House Adjustment (SHA) Program provides community service to first-time offending youth who commit a petty offense as a consequence for their behavior. To participate in the program, the youth cannot have any prior arrests or be on Probation, must be between the ages of 10 and 18, and be a Somerset County resident. The goal of this intervention is to deter the youth from continuing their negative behavior and progressing further into the juvenile justice system.
The program is conducted within local communities, such as parks or nonprofits, on Saturdays 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Hours are more flexible during the summer.
The services of the program include:
- Community service development and supervision
- Life skill opportunities
- Informal counseling
- Information and referral services, as needed
- Support services, as needed
