Welcome to the West Central Juvenile Rehabilitation Facility

West Central Building

Serving Auglaize, Darke, Mercer, Miami, Preble, and Shelby Counties

We, at West Central Rehabilitation, are committed to maintain a safe and secure environment for the youth we serve, the staff, and visitors to the Facility.  As a parent or legal guardian, we understand your concern about your family member being a resident at this Facility and we want to put your concern at ease because they are in a structured, safe, secure environment.  The youth are supervised at all times throughout the day and their behavior is constantly monitored.  They do have to follow strict rules with violations resulting in consequences.  These rules are designed to keep the Facility and people in it safe and secure.  The goal of this Facility is to return the youth back to the community as a productive member of society.  This goal is a challenging one to achieve.  It takes family involvement and support.  It takes dedicated staff with quality programming.  Most importantly, it takes the youth to want to change and utilize the tools they have learned here at our Facility and apply those tools to their decision making.  This goal can be accomplished and the low recidivism rate of our youth reentering the criminal justice arena is a testament to our staff and program here at West Central Juvenile Rehabilitation Facility(WCJRF).

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask any of our staff members or you may contact me directly at any time.  Please look over the rest of the information on this website as it may help provide you with the information you need or answer your questions.
