VISITING

 

Providing our residents with opportunities to connect in meaningful conversations and interactions with parents is very important.  NNJS operates a behavioral program that allows for varying incentives depending on what level (Level 1, Level 2, Honors Level) the youth is on.  You will see this reflected in the following policies. The following is a list of our visitation, phone, and mail policies.
