The Western Maryland Children's Center (WMCC) opened in September 2003. WMCC is a secure detention facility for youth waiting to go to court or be placed in a treatment program. It has the capacity to serve both male and female youth primarily from the Western Region, which includes Allegany, Garrett, Frederick and Washington Counties.

WMCC provides dietary, medical, educational and counseling services as well as space for recreation. In addition to receiving services, youth placed at WMCC attend school in the facility year round, five days a week for six hours a day.
