The Vilas County Diversion Program is a voluntary alternative to criminal prosecution for eligible participants. The offer is extended by the District Attorney’s Office as well as the other jurisdictions in the county. The Diversion Program offers individuals the opportunity to have pending, pre- and post-charge cases resolved after addressing barriers and needs with pertinent, required interventions determined by the Diversion Case Manager. This position is critical in assisting clients as they navigate this process.
Diversion Case Managers are responsible for managing assigned caseloads and providing an appropriate level of supervision to aid participants in reaching successful program outcomes. Case Managers will utilize an evidence-based approach to determine barriers and needs via risk/needs assessments that identify underlying barriers. They will identify interventions, refer individuals to culturally appropriate resources including chemical and mental health services, employment, education, and housing agencies, closely monitor participant progress and maintain accurate documentation in the client database, and prepare and submit detailed reports to the courts outlining participant’s progress with recommendations. This position will serve primarily Vilas County, with the possibility of crossover in Oneida County Diversion.
