The West Central Rehabilitation Facility was constructed in 1992 and opened, taking its first youth in September of 1993 as a Community Correctional Facility for male felons between the ages of 12 and 18. Although WCJRC can house up to 36 youth referred from the six counties in our immediate region inclusive of Auglaize, Darke, Mercer, Miami, Preble and Shelby County, youth may also be accepted from any other county in Ohio. WCJRC is operated under a renewable one-year grant from the Ohio Department of Youth Services.

West Central Juvenile Rehabilitation Center is required to follow operational standards under Chapter 5139-36 of Ohio Revised Code. We are also required to follow Miami County personnel procedures. We have and continued to welcome both fiscal and operational audits. We aspire to obtain re-accreditation for the third time from the American Correctional Association (ACA) in 2016. The facility is now undergoing preparation for the upcoming Prison Rape Elimination Act audit which sets standards for youth protection against sexual abuse and sexual assault within the facility.
