In 1909, Oklahoma started one of the first juvenile courts. In 1950, The Tulsa County Juvenile Court was started in its own facility. This facility had a special juvenile judge. In 1968, a center was built to house the courts and the programs for the juvenile justice system.
The Family Center for Juvenile Justice serves youth and families involved with the juvenile courts. Youth at risk of involvement are also served. The Family Center for Juvenile Justice serves more than four thousand youth and their families per year.
