Portage County JJM

Juvenile Justice Ministry


Elizabeth Gosse

Juvenile Justice Ministry seeks to engage young people as they are met in a variety of youth-serving institutions (detention centers, probation, correctional facilities, group homes, residential treatment centers and emergency shelters). These valued relationships are sustained through ongoing involvement as they reenter their communities. Part of the Portage County programs includes jail ministry, various activities and growth opportunities for students wanting to make a lasting change in their lives.
