Teen Court is a unique justice program for first-time offenders of misdemeanor crimes. It is designed to give youth between 11 and 18 who have broken the law and admitted their guilt a second chance. Those accepted into the program must go “to a sentencing trial” in a real courtroom with teens serving as prosecuting and defense attorneys. An adult judge presides, and a teen jury determines the sentence, including mandatory community service and jury duty in future Teen Courts. Upon successful completion of the program, charges against the defendant are dismissed.

Fresh Out the Gates Support Meetings
Fridays at 10:00 am-1930 West Colorado Avenue, 80904 (SRC Headquarters)
https://srchope.org/peers-behind-the-walls/ 
Fresh Out the Gates, a weekly support group at Springs Recovery Connection, focuses on a community of people who share similar problems adjusting in society and remaining sober after incarceration. Through meetings and positive conversations and connections, the group provides understanding, hope, and overall wellness. 

The purpose of Fresh Out the Gates is to create a group of leaders and peers in our community who have experienced drug addiction and incarceration that understand and can use their journey to help others on their path to true freedom. 

Working together, we can better understand why we keep making the same mistakes that result in incarceration and hopelessness. We share stories, coping tools, and other prosocial activities that support community connections, overall health and wellness, and long-term recovery.

Community Partners offer a wide range of services. The services offered under WAGEES are free of charge for most services but there is often a progressive cost share for services such as housing. Some Community Partners have their own housing which is available to people who need such assistance and are willing to follow the rules and guidelines established by the Community Partner for safe and successful reentry. Housing resources are always in strong demand which creates limitations in the duration and amount of support provided. Talk with your Community Partner for the most current information and availability.
