Enriching Lives

We would like to purchase high interest books, games, enrichment activity materials and fidgets for the youth staying at the West Central Regional Juvenile Center (WCRJC). The current selection of books was described by a teen recently living there as “Chicken Soup books and about a million bibles.” Staff and youth will work together to identify their priority needs and wants and an Amazon wishlist will be created. We would like to purchase complete series of popular titles to create a collection of books more representative of the backgrounds and interests of the youth living there. There is also a high need for fidgets and other calming tools to be used by neurodiverse residents as well as games and supplies for art and other enrichment activities. The West Central Regional Juvenile Center (WCRJC) serves all genders and includes a 55 bed secure facility, and 25 bed non-secure care program. The center is located in Moorhead, Minnesota and provides services for juveniles with behavioral, protection, dependency, and delinquency issues. Programs include secure detention, secure residential, non-secure detention / Social Service emergency placement, and Community Living Independent Programming and Skills (CLIPS).
