Growing Together for Change

The youth and staff from the Pasco Regional Detention Center are starting up an aquaponics garden at their facility that will not only teach our youth how to cultivate and nurture the garden, but to provide fresh vegetables that will be used in meals at the facility. The garden is being put together with the guidance and help of resident Chaplain Dennis Buchanan, Camelot Community Care’s Mental Health Authority Jeff Smialek and Grief Group Leader Todd Patterson. 

Camelor provides mental health and psychiatric services to all of the Tampa Bay area juvenile detention cetners where our staff help with behavioral and emotional issues children in the center may be experiencing.  Projects like this help bring a sense of accomplishment and self worth to the children while our staff work with them to prevent future juvenile justice activity.
