Youth in Community Residential Placement

Non Secure Care, more commonly called Residential Placement, is a less restrictive means of providing custody for youth in need of treatment and out of home placement, but do not pose a large threat to public safety. When a judge places a youth in OJJ custody, the youth is assessed to determine if he or she is appropriate for residential placement. In addition, some youth may be “stepped down” from secure care to prepare them for return to their home. All residential placements are run by nonprofits who contract with OJJ.
