Carroll County Mediation Services, Inc.
Juvenile Diversion in Southern Carroll County
Carroll County Mediation Services, Inc. last year opened a satellite office in Ossipee, 30 miles to the south of its main office. All indications are that services offered by CCMS are greatly needed there and that the Ossipee office has the potential to become the larger of the two offices. CCMS has experienced a series of events leading to a shortfall threatening the continuance of the second office. Funds will be used to help fund what will grow into a full-time position and to develop and operate the Carroll County Juvenile Diversion Program and related programs in the southern office through this period.
Juveniles referred to our program by the court for law breaking will follow our juvenile diversion program through which they will become accountable for their actions and avoid escalation of unhealthy choices (the majority are drug involved) and lawbreaking leading to detention out of their communities.
