"Society has not, to this point in time developed many alternatives which are available to the court for the handling of the juvenile adjudicated as delinquent. The major forms are, and have been since the establishment of the judicial court probation, probation with a suspended sentence or commitment to an institution. From these, the sentencing authority must select that form of treatment that is best suited to the needs of the individual and is in the best interests of the community."
The purpose of this institution then, is to serve the court adjudicated juvenile (age 12-19) delinquent girl through a process of "reintegration"; that is, to broaden her opportunities and capabilities for functioning within society. "The aim of the institution is to teach the girls how to get along with people, not how to get along without them."
