About Us
Owens Educational Services, Inc. (OES) serves as an educational opportunity for at risk youths, disadvantaged adults, and troubled families. We provide alternatives to incarceration and diversionary programs to persons on probation or parole; we provide educational programs and support to youth at risk of dropping out of school.
Why We Do This
Preventing delinquency not only saves young lives from being wasted, but also prevents the onset of adult criminal careers and thus reduces the burden of crime on its victims and on society. It costs states billions of dollars a year to arrest, prosecute, incarcerate, and treat juvenile offenders. Investing in successful delinquency prevention programs can save taxpayers seven to ten dollars for every dollar invested, primarily in the form of reduced spending on prisons.
