State Juvenile Justice Officials Hold Open House at the Bridges Crisis and Assessment Center

WINSTON-SALEM

WHAT:

The Division of Adult Correction and Juvenile Justice will host an open house at the Bridges Crisis and Assessment Center in Winston-Salem.

The goal of this project is to develop an effective plan of care, reduce further court involvement, promote stronger families and to assure safer communities.

This center, which will begin serving juveniles from the Piedmont area on April 26, is located in the former Forsyth Juvenile Detention Center, which was renovated to meet the specific needs of this project.

WHEN:

Monday, April 25, 2-5 p.m.

WHERE:

5550 Sturmer Park Circle, Winston-Salem, NC 27105 (Former Forsyth Detention Center)
