Oakland County Children's Village offers a safe, structured environment for youth that includes secure detention, residential treatment and shelter care services. Since 1929 we have been providing quality, innovative and comprehensive services to youth and families
Our mission is to provide the best possible services to children and youth who come under the jurisdiction of the court and are deemed to be temporarily in need of out-of- home care, custody and treatment, delivered in a caring, safe and therapeutic setting, which also serves to protect the public.
We believe in the abilities and rights of individuals to make positive changes to their lifestyles and value systems that would result in a more successful adaptation to community living. We believe that by providing a series of treatment services, utilizing the least restrictive setting necessary, these changes will be facilitated and reinforced. We believe that the focus of treatment is with the youth and the youths family, and services are aimed at achieving the earliest and most reasonable return of the youth to the community, while keeping in mind public safety.
Oakland County Children's Village staff are committed to working with youth to change high risk behaviors. Staff affirms and appreciates religion, culture, ethnicity, gender and all aspects of diversity. Staff are responsible for safety and security and also serve as coaches and mentors. The Village strongly believes that each resident has potential and can be successful when provided with support and guidance.
