Juvenile Reception Center

A Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative undertaken by The Annie E. Casey Foundation to reduce the reliance on secure confinement, the Reception Center provides 24-hour immediate intervention services for youth ages 11 to 17 picked up by the Portland Police for truancy, curfew violations, running away, trespassing and other low level misdemeanors and status offenses.

A collaboration with the Portland Police Department, Multnomah County Department of Human Services and the Juvenile Services Division of the Department of Community Justice, the Reception Center, co-located at Harry’s Mother, provides a safe, non-secure setting for youth waiting to be reunited with their parents or guardians. While at the Reception Center youth have access to crisis counseling or other services they or their family may need to decrease further involvement in the juvenile justice system, including referral to the Harry’s Mother Garfield Shelter.
