Welcome to the West Central Juvenile Rehabilitation Facility

West Central Building

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

We, at West Central Rehab, strive to do everything in our power to maintain a safe and secure environment for both the youth we serve, the staff, and the communities the youth come from. As a parent, you may have concerns about your son being incarcerated at our facility. We want you know that, although he is away from home and has limited contact with you, he is safe. Youth are supervised at all times throughout the day and their behavior is closely monitored. They do have to follow strict rules with violations resulting in consequences. This is all meant to keep the facility and people in it, safe and secure.

Youth are in the program for indeterminate lengths of time, depending on the program they are in, how hard they work, and their behaviors. Returning productive citizens to the community is the goal for all of the youth. This is not an easy process for the youth or the staff. People need to understand that this takes time but with hard work from all those involved, this goal can be accomplished. All the staff are prepared to assist the youth in making the life changes necessary to become positive people and to avoid future criminal behavior.

If, at any time, you are concerned about the safety and well being of the youth in our facility, either in their basic safety or the possibility that he is being sexually abused or sexually harassed, please notify us as quickly as possible. Youth may fill out a grievance form, complete the "Third Party Reporting Form" on this website, or contact me via E-Mail or phone to make me aware so that the matter can receive my full attention.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask any of our staff members or you may contact me 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
