PASS employs several evidence-based approaches to supporting families, including strength-based Intensive Case Management (ICM), Functional Family Therapy (FFT) in partnership with the Department of Behavioral Health (DBH), and the Transition to Independence Process (TIP) in partnership with DBH, a case management system for older youth with emotional and behavioral challenges. All youth receiving PASS services have access to community support services such as mentoring, tutoring, and after-school programming.
PASS is a voluntary program open to families of DC youth ages 10-17 who are committing status offenses. Parents/guardians and the youth must commit to participating in the case planning process and recommended services. Families are not eligible for PASS if they have an open case with the Child and Family Services Agency (CFSA) or if the youth has an active case with Court Social Services (CSS) or the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services (DYRS).
