Program Outcome Measures

The data for Fiscal Year 2013 highlights the success of the program.  EBYFSB received 212 referrals from Maryland Department of Justice (DJS) and the Baltimore Police Department (BPD).  Of the 212 youth referred, 147 (69%) were reconnected to their parents/guardian, avoiding unnecessary secure detention at the Baltimore City Juvenile Justice Center.  55 (26%) were placed in shelter; and 10 (5%) were placed in detention.  It should be noted that the benchmark for the PYEP was 40%.
