Compliance Visits


All youth–regardless of their crime–deserve to be in a safe, comfortable, and rehabilitative facility. It is our responsibility as a community to work collaboratively with facility directors, judges, and lawmakers to ensure that this vision is actualized and maintained.

Our Work:

  • We make annual visits to all the secure care facilities in the state, as well as the Youth Study Center in New Orleans, to ensure compliance and make recommendations.
  • We also conduct more in depth studies of specific components of juvenile incarceration facilities, like their educational offerings or mental health programming.
