461. The Ozark Center
The Ozark Center, which runs Turnabout Ranch near Joplin, Missouri has been in the media at least two times about concerning incidents.
The authorities were not notified in time about an alleged rape of a boy. An empployee was reported to the authorities by envious girls who didn’t get anything from the employee unlike one of the girls in the program rather than the management.
Lack of supervision seems to be the standard inside this facility and that makes it safe to say that it cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
