It has been enhancing the worth of individuals for two decades by giving them the skills and insight to become successful, caring and involved community members.
The Western Ohio Regional Treatment and Habilitation Center is opening its doors to the public to celebrate 20 years of being a residential probation center.
The W.O.R.T.H. Center houses non-violent male and female offenders that have been sentenced to treatment rather then incarceration in a state penal institution.
The public is invited to an open house this Friday, May 17th from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. to see first hand the programs that are used to promote positive change in offenders.
The goal is to keep offenders in touch with family and community where mutual adjustment between both must take place for habilitation to work.
The center is operated by the facilities governing board for the district comprised of Allen, Auglaize, Hancock, Hardin, Mercer, Paulding, Putnam, Shelby, and Van Wert counties.
