Juvenile Center Works to Keep Kids Out

Ever wonder what goes on inside the Juvenile Detention Center on Kiefer? Well, a lot more than you might expect, especially around health and life skills. Pamela Gandy-Rosemond, Medical Director at the Center, briefed the Rosemont community at the October RCA board meeting, and provided encouraging insights on what is being done to keep youth from a life of crime. Not only is a wide array of full time medical service provided, from arrival screenings to regular checkups, but the detainees are educated in how to use the medical system when they get out, whether they need it just to stay well, or to recover from illness or substance abuse or deal with mental illness. Dental and vision care is also provided. And that is just on the medical side. A full range of educational program is also offered so that detainees do not fall behind in their schooling; they can even get a full high school diploma while there, and also various trade skills so they can work once released. In short, much is done to turn the kids around and set them on a solid path to being good citizens and not return to their old ways – or the Center.
