About the Unit
The Eaton County Youth Facility operates a coed 8 bed juvenile detention unit which houses juveniles who have been court ordered by the Eaton County Circuit, Juvenile/ Family or Probate Courts. While detained on the unit, youth are provided a safe, secure, structured trauma-informed environment while being monitored 24 hours a day by our highly trained staff.
Youth participate in various educational programs, discussion groups, recreation/gym and other activities along with having various job responsibilities. Youth have weekly goals developed (contracts) to help improve on specific behaviors and skills.
