Detention Menu Item Renamed to "Facility"

To better represent the diverse set of programs, day treatment, residential, and detention facilities that use YouthCenter, we have renamed the menu item "Detention" to "Facility" in the navigation menu. All applications found under "Detention" will continue to be present, we just renamed it to better represent a wider audience of users.
