Screening Criteria


OYA/PO Page | Home | Program Information







We currently have a waiting list and referrals are made 90 days or more in advance. Emergency referrals are considered on a space available basis. Preference is given to Lane County youth when appropriate.  Advance referrals should be made in writing when it is determined that the Haag Home is a placement option. Preference is also given to those parole/probation officers who have demonstrated a willingness to support the services and interventions necessary for successful program completion. After screening and acceptance, student names are kept in an open file awaiting placement. To be considered, referrals must contain the following information:

  • OYA Risk Needs Assessment & Case Plan (indicating a Moderate to High Risk)
  • Jurisdiction/reason for placement
  • Reformation and/or treatment plans and evaluations (less than 6 months old)
  • Psychological evaluation & ERASOR (if available)
  • Family visitation resources (if available)
  • Medical assessment
  • Medication (at least 30 day supply)
  • Prior placement history
  • Amount of restitution owed and payment information
  • Temper/aggressiveness assessment
  • Diploma/GED information

All referrals are screened for the BRS 4 program only! BRS 3 clients are screened internally from the BRS 4 program for the appropriateness of a reduced level of supervision.

Youth that are to be considered appropriate for this level of care are:

  • Legally eligible for a non-secure placement
  • At least 17 years of age unless a non-independent (supported) transition plan is in place at intake, and the client is above average in maturity level
  • Behaviorally able to cope with the requirements and structure of group living
  • Pre-screened and eligible for placement under Behavioral Rehabilitation Services (BRS)
  • Able to understand and willing to abide by the program rules and staff directions
  • Able to function independent of constant direct supervision
  • Willing and able to actively seek and secure employment
