Parent Information and Education Sessions (PIES)
Executive staff meets monthly with parents to collaborate and improve communication between the facility and the families of the youth at Pendleton Juvenile. During the meeting, parents and family members over 18 years of age will be given a facility tour. Staff will discuss programs, policies and issues related to the administration of the facility. Parents are encouraged to bring suggestions and ideas for discussion. If you are interested in being a member of the ‘PIES’ please provide your contact information by completing the attached flyer and returning it to the facility. Flyers will be posted in visitation area announcing upcoming meeting dates.
