Throughout each year, employees of the Department of Juvenile Services participate in myriad programs designed to benefit the families they serve. One such program is the St. Alphonsus Living Giving Tree Outreach Program. Each year, the members of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church purchase and wrap Christmas gifts for children in need. These range from baby-care products to clothing and toys.
Since 1990, St. Alphonsus has invited Juvenile Services to participate in their giving program. As a result of the overwhelming generosity of St. Alphonsus’ parishioners, Juvenile Services Probation staff is able to deliver Christmas gifts to needy probationers and their siblings.
