Janet Reinman is the Gunnison County Juvenile Services Director and has worked for the County for over 30 years. The mission of the program is to provide information, prevention and intervention services to youth and their families so they can become healthy, responsible and productively involved in their communities. Her department has expanded beyond its original purpose of pre-court Diversion services to include a substance abuse prevention program and a family advocacy program. In a typical year her department may serve as many as 700 youth in prevention programming and 50 plus youth and families in the advocacy and court services.
With a Masters in Counseling she is trained in most matters related to the health and wellness of youth. Janet helped create the program now called Gunnison Valley Mentors. She has served on numerous boards and committees over the years and has been a long time member of the County Child Protection Team. Currently she serves on the Leadership Committee for the Community Health Coalition of the Gunnison Valley that includes mental and physical health professionals, law enforcement, juvenile services, public health, and many nonprofits.
When Janet is not busy at work she enjoys reading her monthly Book Club selection in order to prepare to share thoughts and wine with her Book Club friends.
