RECOGNIZING SUCCESS

Barbara Allen-Hagen Award

The Barbara Allen-Hagen Award was established in 2007 to honor Barbara Allen-Hagen and her retirement from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). Her dedication to improving the quality of life in facilities for youths has helped drive the Performance-based Standards program to its current success. The award is given annually to one correction, detention/assessment and community residential program that best exemplifies our commitment to treating all young people as one of our own and used the continuous improvement model to achieve positive outcomes for young people, staff and families. Applications will be accepted from February 1 through March 31, 2024.
