Our Facility

 The Juvenile Residential Center of Northwest Ohio (JRCNWO), opened in 1994, is a 42 bed community correctional facility for low-risk juvenile male felony offenders ages 12-18.  The facility serves a 10-county catchment area including Defiance, Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert, Williams, and Wood Counties.  However, referrals are accepted from all Juvenile Courts in Ohio. JRCNWO is funded by the Ohio Department of Youth Services as a minimally secure facility that serves as an alternative to a commitment to the Department of Youth Services.
