Our Mission and Purpose

Our purpose is to provide quality evidence-based juvenile detention practices and programming with a focus on public safety, accountability, and individual treatment needs of the juvenile, and to provide educational, medical, mental health and evidence-based treatment programming that supports every juvenile’s capacity to learn.

These services focus on the best interest of the youth through a professional culture which holds them behaviorally accountable in a manner conducive to personal growth and development.

Our mission focuses on rehabilitation through humane, secure facilities where professional staff nurture emotional maturity and behavioral change. With individualized programming, we give juveniles a chance to progress into community-minded adults even after mistakes. And quality care attuned to specific needs promotes lasting change.
