Lower Eastern Shore Children's Center
The Lower Eastern Shore Children’s Center (LESCC) opened in 2002. Located in Wicomico County, LESCC serves as a secure detention facility for male and female youth who are waiting to go to court or be placed in a treatment facility. LESCC primarily serves youth from the Eastern Shore Region.
LESCC provides dietary, medical, educational and counseling services as well as space for recreation. In addition to receiving services, youth placed at LESCC attend school in the facility year round, five days a week for six hours a day.
