Juveniles in crisis-from serious, violent, and chronic offenders to victims of abuse and neglect-pose a challenge to the nation. Charged by Congress<https://www.ojjdp.gov/about/legislation.html> to meet this challenge, OJJDP collaborates with professionals from diverse disciplines to improve juvenile justice policies and practices.

OJJDP, a component of the Office of Justice Programs<http://www.ojp.gov/>, U.S. Department of Justice<http://www.justice.gov/>, accomplishes its mission<https://www.ojjdp.gov/about/missionstatement.html> by supporting states, local communities, and tribal jurisdictions in their efforts to develop and implement effective programs for juveniles. The Office strives to strengthen the juvenile justice system's efforts to protect public safety, hold offenders accountable, and provide services that address the needs of youth and their families.
Through its components<https://www.ojjdp.gov/about/DivList.asp>, OJJDP sponsors research, program, and training initiatives; develops priorities and goals and sets policies to guide federal juvenile justice issues; disseminates information about juvenile justice issues; and awards funds to states to support local programming.

About the Indian Country Child Trauma Center

The Indian Country Child Trauma Center is part of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network funded by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration under the National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative. It is housed on the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center campus in the OU Children's Physicians Center on Child Abuse and Neglect.
