CAPITAL DISTRICT JUVENILE SECURE DETENTION FACILITY

Developed to meet the long-standing need identified by four counties (Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady) to provide a safe secure detention program for youth in crisis. In the past, juveniles in need of detention intervention were transported long distances.
Operated by Berkshire Farm Center and Services for Youth, the facility provides a safe, secure, and healthy environment for juveniles, most between the ages of 10-15. The program provides for realistic assessments, coordination of systemic and family communication, and other efforts on behalf of the resident, in conjunction with court-mandated services.
