Visitation Time and Rules

REGULAR VISITATION

Parents, step-parents, grandparents and legal guardians are allowed to visit on every Sunday from:

Detention:  3:30pm – 5:00pm

Residential: 3:00pm – 5:00pm

Authorized visitors are required to present photo identification before being screened for entry.  Anyone who is not authorized to visit the child will not be allowed to enter the building.  We ask that siblings not be on Center grounds, as they will not be allowed to enter the building under any circumstance.  If the days and hours are not compatible with your schedule, please contact the Case Manager assigned to your child and special arrangements for visitation can be made.

Your child’s Case Manager contact info is located under the "Contact Us" page.  The Case Managers work a rotating schedule, with various work hours.

No one under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be allowed to visit.  If we suspect that a visitor may be under the influence, they will be asked to leave the building.  Remember that visitation is a privilege that can be suspended or canceled.

We ask that no items such as purses, handbags, cell phones or duffel bags be brought into the building during visitation.  Visitors will be asked to leave their coats and jackets in the entrance area during their visit.  Also, no food, candy, drinks, magazines, electronic devices, books, etc. will be allowed without prior authorization. Please be advised that there is absolutely no smoking in the building or within 25 feet of any entrance.

No letters, notes cards or photographs can be brought in for any resident.  These items can only be mailed to the facility.
