Donald E. Long Home's mission is...
"to create and maintain a safe, secure, stable, and enriching environment for juveniles in our care, while protecting the community."

The facility is staffed 24 hours per day, 7 days weekly  to provide a safe and secure setting to detain youth ages 12 – 17.  The average length of stay per youth is 14 days but the range can run anywhere between 1 to 260 days.
