Each year about 450 people are killed and $300 million in property is destroyed in fires attributed to children playing with fire.
Children can enter the program voluntarily or by referral from a parent, social worker, or police officer. The first step is to assess the child, in order to determine the level of intervention needed. The child is then referred to the proper counseling, therapy, or residential placement.
To learn more about the program, please call 410-313-0JFS (0537).
