Juvenile Receiving Center

Free crisis counseling, referrals and short-term placement for youth

We are open! The Juvenile Receiving Center is a 24/7 facility that provides free crisis counseling, referrals to community agencies, and short-term placement for youth ages 8 to 17. Youth under the age of 10 are unable to stay overnight.

Youth may come to the facility on their own or parents may bring youth in for individual or family crisis counseling. Law enforcement may bring in youth who have committed a status offense or delinquent act that does not meet Detention Admission Guidelines. This may include running away from home, truancy, substance abuse, curfew violation or acting beyond the control of the youth's parents. No appointment is needed to access the Juvenile Receiving Center services.
