A ribbon cutting and open house was held Wednesday to celebrate the opening of the new Department of Family and Children Services and Department of Juvenile Justice building located behind the county health department in Pembroke.

The $1.3 million project broke ground eight months ago. The 10,292 square foot building is leased to the state by Bryan County. The building boasts two comfortable lobbies, one for DFCS and one for DJJ, numerous offices for case managers, observation and visitation rooms, and several conference/training rooms.

"We are so grateful for our new building and for your support," Bryan County DFCS Director Stanley Walthour told state, county and city officials, and DFCS and DJJ staff. "If it were not for the county we would not be in this building."
