Hamilton County Youth Assistance has hired an additional case worker to assist with the Westfield Program.

Brown enjoys spending time with her husband, Andy, and sons, Adam and Ethan. She enjoys participating and watching all kinds of sports and spending time with friends and family.

“I am so excited to be a part of the Westfield Youth Assistance Program, and I am so impressed with the Westfield Community and all the people that I have had the privilege of meeting,” Brown said.

The Youth Assistance Program is a program created by the City of Westfield, Westfield Washington Schools and the Hamilton County Probation Division. The goal is to identify youth in need of assistance before they become part of the growing juvenile and criminal justice system. The program identifies youth heading down the wrong path and provides treatment for the entire family, ultimately ensuring that the child begins heading down the right path. Although the youth are evaluated and treated based on specific needs, the treatment consists of, but is not limited to, a mentoring program, community volunteering involvement, family education, skill building tutoring programs and scholarship camps.
