Juvenile Detention/Shelter
 Westmoreland County Youth Services Center The Westmoreland County Regional Youth Services Center provides short-term care for male and female youth age 10 to 21* in need of emergency shelter or placement in secure detention. Our secure detention facility houses up to 12 alleged delinquent or adjudicated delinquent juveniles awaiting disposition of the court. The youth shelter with 8 beds, is a non-secure facility maintained separately from detention for dependent and delinquent youths.  

The staff works to minimize the negative effects of confinement, focusing on protecting the community when juveniles cannot remain with parents when placement in shelter care is inappropriate.

 From a recent letter to Director Rich Gordon....          
"I wanted to tell you of my experience with shelter staff. Recently, my nephew resided in the shelter for a time. I had opportunity to visit with him there and found the line staff to be helpful and kind. They purchased items for him to read and went out of their way to help him through this difficult time."

Renovated in 2010, the Center boasts attractive, well-lit common spaces including a TV lounge, library, and and outdoor basketball and recreation area. Current rates are Per diem: $199.00 for Detention and $190.00 for Shelter.
