The facility is situated on 60 acres in  LaPorte, Indiana. The facility's physical plant is composed of six (6) buildings. The main building comprises housing units, kitchen/dining area and administrative offices. The main structure of the facility was erected in 1953. LPJCF can house up to sixty-two (62) female youth. It is the only female juvenile facility in Indiana. LaPorte Juvenile also serves as the intake facility for female youth. Court ordered diagnostic evaluations occur at LaPorte Juvenile for female youth.
