The Yuba-Sutter Juvenile Hall provides juvenile detention services to the communities of Yuba and Sutter Counties. The facility has operated since 1976 under a Joint Powers Agreement between the two counties. Yuba County Probation is the administrative agency responsible for the management and daily operation of the facility. The Juvenile Hall is a 60 bed, 24-hour secure detention facility providing detention services for Yuba, Sutter and Colusa Counties. The facility is located at 1023 14th Street, in Marysville. The Juvenile Hall is a temporary holding facility for youth who are pending disposition before the Juvenile Court. Although a small number of youth are serving court ordered commitments, the majority of the youth detained in the facility are pending Juvenile Court proceedings.

The Juvenile Correctional Officers, medical and mental health staff, school teachers, and other facility support staff make every effort to address the social, behavioral, psychological, and emotional needs of the detained minors. Their shared goal is to provide services that will assist the youth in successfully reintegrating back into the community.


The Maxine Singer Youth Guidance Center, "Camp Singer", is a 60 bed facility that was opened in 2001 as a joint effort between the Yuba and Sutter County Probation Departments. It was developed as and alternative to out of home placements and extended Juvenile Hall stays. The Maxine Singer Youth Guidance Center provides a broad range of opportunities for growth and development for boys and girls, 13 thru 19 years of age that require protracted services to meet their needs in a secure environment. The Maxine Singer Youth Guidance Center provides a safe environment featuring open dormitory housing. Our custodial staff provide a safe and culturally sensitive environment where youth receive the attention and support they need to address issues while achieving their goals. Emphasis is placed on improving individual physical fitness and volunteering for opportunities to provide community service locally. Educational support services are provided by the Yuba County Office of Education, which is a fully accredited educational program. The educational program consists of; math, reading, science, history, literature and vocational technology.

Together, they provide individual, group and family programs. Our goal is to provide serviuces that will assist the youth in successfully reintegrating back into the community.
