HISTORY OF MUNCIE’S YOUTH OPPORTUNITY CENTER

October 4, 2016 @ 6:00 am - 7:15 am

Speaker: Mr. Steve Caldemeyer, retired judge

In 1989, Judge Steven Caldemeyer recognized the growing problems with the Delaware County Children’s home, which included staff shortages, children not getting the help they needed, and repairs that needed to be made to the facility. So he starting looking for a solution. He, along with several local youth advocates, visited other facilities to find a model for what they envisioned, but they found out that no such model yet existed. After much fundraising, their vision was realized in 1992 when the Youth Opportunity Center accepted its first set of children in their residential program. Today, the center serves more than 40 Indiana counties, assisting youth and their families with the ultimate goal of reunifying children with their parents.
