Felony Intervention: Community Navigators
CHOOSE 180 is part of an innovative plan to serve young people who have been accused of committing felony offenses in King County. Our Community Navigator walks participants through the court process and acts as their advocate, helping them make it to meetings, develop a plan for success, and supporting them when they get stuck. At the end of six months of engagement, youth who have demonstrated a commitment to their 180 will have the opportunity to get their case reduced or dismissed. This work is done in partnership with the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, Juvenile Court, and the Department of Public Defense.
