What are the financial obligations associated with residing at Duvall?
All Residents are responsible for  their own housing costs at the Duvall Residential Center.   At admission and during your intake/orientation, each resident will sign a power of attorney form, to the Duvall Residential  Center, which will allow the Business Manager to cash the check, pay fees owed and return remaining monies back to the resident.  The monies due back to the resident will be returned as soon as possible. 
The following payment plan will be followed: those paid weekly and turning in a check over $100 would receive a check back in the amount of $50; those paid bi-weekly and turning in a check of over $200.00 would receive a check back in the amount of $100.00; those turning in a check less than $100.00 (calculated weekly) but more than $50.00 would receive back a check in the amount of $50.00; those turning in a check of $50.00 or less would receive their entire check back.  If you are paid with direct deposit you must get a money order for the full amount of your check.  $50.00 is the maximum amount a resident may have on their person at any one time
