Jacksonville Juvenile Crisis Center Funding Not Included in Jacksonville Journey

The Jacksonville Youth Crisis Center was not funded by the Jacksonville Journey in the new budget, according to Jacksonville.com. One of the goals of the Jacksonville Journey is establishing crime prevention programs, and the Jacksonville Crisis Center is one of the best.

The Center is there for all Jacksonville youth that are in trouble from domestic disputes at home that lead to the child to run away or to get kicked out of the house. The program has Project Safe Place, where all Jacksonville Children can go if they are in trouble. The Center also provides a short-term shelter and counseling to troubled children. Family outpatient counseling is also available.
