It was guided by Structural Functionalism Theory and Social Learning Theory. Descriptive research design was applied and 18 juvenile children were sampled from a population of 45 children, through simple random sampling technique, while all the 9 staff members were purposively sampled through census sampling technique. Questionnaires were administered to children for quantitative data, and also Focus group discussion while staff members were interviewed for qualitative data. Quantitative and Qualitative data analysis was done descriptively using, excel word and SPSS version.22 and presented on frequency tables and percentages. It was found that rehabilitative programs that were offered in the remand home were counseling, both individual and group, vocational skill trainings, spiritual welfare, informal education and agriculture. These programs were found to be effective in addressing juvenile behavioral problems and their anti-social behavior. There was positive behavioral change that was observed among the children as a result of the rehabilitation programs.
