Mission Statement

Our mission is to respond to the community's needs with a continuum of care, programming, services and advocacy for minors in settings that are safe for both the community and the youth.

We will treat each youth with respect and dignity, holding them to appropriate behavioral expectations through a system of rewards and consequences that are applied in a fair, firm and consistent manner which is conducive to their personal growth and development.


The Youth Services Center opened in October 1992 under the direction of Circuit Court Judge Steve Heimann.  In January 2013, the Youth Services Center came under the umbrella of Court Services.  Court Services entities include Adult and Juvenile Probation, Community Corrections and the Youth Services Center.
