Visitation Information

Visitation Hours

  • Saturday12:00pm - 4:00 pm

  • Sunday12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

OJJ Visitation Guidelines link from their website - Support and visitation by family members play a crucial role in ensuring the well-being of youth in secure care facilities. Visits from family members can serve as a source of motivation and inspiration for youth, encouraging their active participation in programming and helping them to achieve the goals outlined in their treatment plans. Moreover, such visits may contribute to the possibility of an earlier release date for the youth. Demonstrating your care through regular visits reassures your child that they are not forgotten and reinforces their sense of connection to their family.

During your visit, you will have the opportunity to meet with facility staff to discuss your child's progress and any concerns you may have. Your child may designate approved visitors, and the facility will assist them in creating a visitor list with guidance from their case manager or counselor. This list will be available for your review.

To ensure the safety and security of all individuals involved, background checks are conducted on potential visitors before they are permitted to visit the facility grounds. Your child retains the right to refuse any visitor if they so choose.

If you encounter challenges in visiting your child due to transportation issues or personal circumstances, you are encouraged to reach out to the facility, regional office, or the OJJ Regional Family Liaison for assistance in scheduling a visit or addressing any other concerns you may have.

For detailed information on the visitor approval process and safety measures during visitation, please refer to the secure care facilities or contact the relevant authorities for guidance.
