Juvenile Diversion Programs of Lewiston, Maine – Final Evaluation Report

From January 2016 through June 2017, the John T.Gorman Foundation funded three organizations: Tree Street Youth, Inc., The Root Cellar, and Maine Immigrant Refugee Services to provide diversion services to youth in the juvenile justice system in Lewiston, Maine.

As part of the project, the Foundation contracted with Hornby Zeller Associates to conduct an evaluation of the programs to better understand the implementation process and the outcomes of the youth served during the course of the eighteen-month grant period.

This report details the findings from the evaluation and describes the characteristics of youth served, program implementation and activities conducted by the three programs, and the youth’s outcomes. *JTGF-funded
