Programs & Facilities
Residential facilities are for youth who are required by a judge to stay in the care of the Department of Juvenile Justice for an extended time. There are facilities located throughout Florida. A youth's placement depends on the commitment plan, not on the location of the arrest. For help in finding what program a youth resides in, contact his or her JPO. In order to find the contact information for each program, simply click on the link for that program in the table below. The title of the program will take the user to a page that includes the name of the program's director, that person's email address, the program's address with a telephone number and a fax number.
The Residential Data Reports contain output and outcome measures reported for each program open during the fiscal year. Each program is identified by program name, provider, program group (i.e., restrictiveness level and gender) and program type. Quarterly measures will be updated the month following the end of the quarter. The annual measures will be updated annually during the third quarter of each fiscal year. The link below will open the Residential Data Reports in an interactive pop-up window.
