Juvenile Detention in North Carolina

Record #:
In 1968, there were seven juvenile detention centers in the state; Buncombe County Receiving Home (Asheville), Durham County Youth Home (Durham), Forsyth County Center (Winston-Salem), Gaston County Juvenile Detention Home (Gastonia), Guilford County Juvenile Detention Home (Greensboro), Mecklenburg County Juvenile Diagnostic Center (Charlotte), and Wake County Detention Home (Raleigh). These seven facilities are run on the county level with no financial support. Only three standards are overseen by the state; approval of staff, program consultation, and standards of training.
