We have over 80 employees delivering services through our main office in Woodward, satellite offices in Guymon and Laverne, a six-bed juvenile detention center in Elk City and an eight-bed center in Woodward. Our Woodward facility has a ten-bed emergency temporary youth shelter and a mobile crisis unit to respond to emergencies.
