Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to give a fifty-nine year historical overview of the development of the state female juvenile institution, Hillcrest School of Oregon. The material covered in the study included state laws which had direct effect upon the programs at the school; the philosophies and goals of the institution covering over half a century; the types of services and programs available to students committed; and the staffing of such programs as they relate to services rendered. The data for this study was collected through extensive research in the Oregon State Archives, Salem, Oregon, and communication with institutional and Children's Services Division personnel. The results of this study indicate the trends in services available to juvenile females incarcerated in Oregon's state institution, the augmenting of staffing patterns as they relate to programs offered at the institution, and the change in emphasis of services offered to each girl. In the early days; Hillcrest School was a very small institution striving to serve court-committed females through farm work, and limited education services without counseling or community placement programs, As the school developed, and as greater concern was shown by the administration of the institution, the legislature, and the public at large, much greater emphasis was given to the individual needs of each girl. Services were developed at the school which included education, counseling, health, religious, recreational and community programs. Hillcrest School of Oregon has a target date for closure as an institution for girls of January 1, 1974. The plan by the state is to combine the programs and services of Mac Laren School for Boys at Woodburn, Oregon, and Hillcrest School of Oregon, Salem, Oregon, into one coeducational facility at Woodburn. Presently the trend in services to youth in the State of Oregon would indicate development and involvement in Community Youth Care Centers located throughout the state. Such centers will serve many youth who in the past were incarcerated in juvenile institutions. With the development of the Children's Service Division, greater emphasis has been given to serving youth in facilities other than institutions. Greater use of community resources is now being sought and developed. Such state-wide programs entail understanding and commitment by the public-at-large and a willingness to share in the responsibility of assisting young women and men who have been embroiled in controversy with legal authorities.
