Section 5139.101 | Transitional services program.
(A) The department of youth services, in coordination with any other agencies deemed necessary, may develop a program to assist a youth leaving the supervision, control, and custody of the department at twenty-one years of age. The program shall provide supportive services for specific educational or rehabilitative purposes, under conditions agreed upon by both the department and the youth and terminable by either. Services shall cease not later than when the youth reaches twenty-two years of age and shall not be construed as extending control of a child beyond discharge as described in section 5139.10 of the Revised Code.
(B) The services provided by the program shall be offered to the youth prior to the youth's discharge date, but a youth may request and the department shall consider any such request for the services described up to ninety days after the youth's effective date of discharge, even if the youth has previously declined services.
