The CHINS Diversion Program

A CHINS petition is for a child under the age of 18 who has either committed an offense that would not have been a crime had the child been 17 years old; or found to be in need of care, guidance, counseling, discipline, supervision, treatment, and rehabilitation.  CHINS can also apply to habitual truancy, or children that habitually run away.  Contact your local court or sheriff's department for the CHINS program in your area.
