Loudoun County is offering new support services for young people and their families at the new Youth Services Center in Leesburg. The facility is home to the new Youth and Family Resource Center, the new RISE Youth Shelter and the re-located Juvenile Detention Center.
Youth and Family Resource Center
The Youth and Family Resource Center is a new service open to Loudoun youth ages 11-17 who may face behavioral challenges, including issues at home, in the community and with peers. The Youth and Family Resource Center connects young people and their families to appropriate Loudoun County programs and services and other local resources. The process includes a brief screening and the development of an action plan so youth and families can get help quickly. The goal of the Youth and Family Resource Center is to prevent or reduce delinquency and court involvement.
