Caliente Youth 3

Caliente Youth Center (CYC), a staff-secure facility located in Caliente has 7-housing units, four units for males and three for females, with a capacity for 140; serving youth ages of 12-18. It has been challenging for CYC to recruit and hire mental health staff, however steps toward achieving full staff have begun with the recent hiring of a psychologist and a mental health counselor. Recognizing the importance of meeting the mental health needs of the youth, other staff were trained and they are in the process of implementing Cognitive Restructuring Techniques, treatment planning and transitional care follow-up upon release of youth from CYC. This center, along with the Lincoln County School District, operates school programs that offer required and elective academic subjects, remedial programs, special education, vocational education and interscholastic activities. Youth at CYC are provided medical care by on-duty nursing staff and a local Physician.
