Hamden Community Residential Program for Boys (BRAVE)
Funded by Court Support Services Division, this program provides group residential setting for 6Ô_ juveniles as an alternative to state community-based detention.
Community Residential Programs are secure, community-based, short-term residential services for delinquents and status offenders. They are used by Juvenile Court Judges, when appropriate, instead of putting juveniles in detention, and provide the juvenile a different place to live when doing so can be helpful. This program provides intensive -secure services including education, structured recreation, community service, individual and group services, family mediation, and access to medical, mental health and substance abuse intervention and treatment.
