The Eaton County Youth Facility is responsible for providing temporary custody and care for youth in a safe and secure setting. The Detention Unit houses youth who have violated the law, violated court orders/probation or are waiting placement in a treatment program.
Youth participate in various educational programs, discussion groups, gym, free time, and activities along with having various job responsibilities. Youth may earn points for positive involvement in the program. Youth will have weekly goals developed (contracts) to help improve on specific behaviors or skills.
