Welcome to the Juvenile Assessment Center
Early Intervention Screening and Assessment for At-Risk, High Need, and Delinquent Youth ages 10-17.
The Juvenile Assessment Center (JAC) is a 501(c)(3) not for profit youth serving organization in Colorado.
We provide no cost assessment services to youth residing in Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties.
Our program believes in a “no wrong door” approach and accepts referrals from parents, schools, human services, judicial services, law enforcement agencies, and other community programs. Call an Assessment Specialist to make an appointment; 720-874-3381.
Our assessment process will identify strengths and needs and pinpoint key areas for intervention.
In collaboration with Arapahoe Douglas Mental Health Network (ADMHN) and Aurora Mental Health Center (AuMHC), the JAC provides specialized substance abuse and mental health assessments through co-located specialists.
In Aurora, the JAC is a partner in Aurora’s Gang Reduction Impact Program (A-GRIP). The JAC A-GRIP Bilingual Mobile Assessment Specialist provides JAC services locally in original Aurora. A-GRIP focuses on preventing youth from becoming involved with gangs; intervening with gang-involved youth and their families; reducing gang-related crime and violence; and creating an environment that inhibits gang activity.

In Elbert and Lincoln counties, the JAC collaborates with the Elbert County Interagency Oversight Group and the 18th Judicial District Senate Bill 94 program to offer Rural Intervention Specialized Case Management (RISC). Click here for more information on RISC
