Youth Services Center Emergency Shelter rated ‘Superior’

Bartholomew County Circuit Court says that the Youth Services Center’s Emergency Shelter received a Superior Rating for this past year’s residential and clinical audit review. Court officials say this accomplishment is extraordinary given the facility’s age, condition and limitations. Judge Kelly Benjamin notes, “This award speaks directly to the heart, care for the kids, and hard work of the staff who work there.”

Anita Biehle, director of Youth Services Center, says, “The rating signifies that the Youth Service Center’s programs’ service delivery practices and policies fully meet and reflect “best practice” in all of the identified areas.” She adds that while the Youth Service Center has always passed these yearly audits, this is the first year a Superior Rating has been awarded.

This audit is conducted by the Indiana Department of Child Services and involves a thorough review of program and clinical areas.
