Duvall Start, Jacksonville, FL
« on: March 01, 2012, 10:42:55 PM »
Looking for information about a program (apparently state-run) that was operating in 2000. A friend of mine, knowing that I'm a straight survivor, has a friend whose son was court-ordered into this place for 7 months at age 13. He's very damaged at 25, I want to find out what I can for him.  Nothing on google.

I found a Duval Start Center in Jacksonville, Florida.  Trying to find any information on this place.

Ok, I'm getting conflict of information here.  The addresses do not remain on the same, depending on the site.  Compare this site:

Duval Start Center is located in Duval County at 2335 W 18th Street, Jacksonville, FL 32209-4599. The contact phone number is (904) 798-4818.

Other sites confirm the latter address.

The school has apparently closed but I can't find any information on when it closed.  It was a school that was classed as an alternative school.

I have found news articles dating as far back as 1987 up to 2004.  Just to give people an idea of timelines.

Thanks, Xelebes. It still isn't adding up.  Apparently in 2000 this kid was having problems with his mom, so went to Florida to stay with his dad. He got into a fistfight at school and was sent to this place. His mom went to Florida and had to go to court to get him out, but even with that they made him stay there seven months. He doesn't say what happened there. He hasn't been the same since, and his mom is pretty guilt ridden and desperate to help him.

I cannot get any accounts of the life there, however there are articles that state that there had been a runaway in 1987 who stole a car and drove to Tennesee.
