The Youth and Family Support Services Program (formerly known as Family Connections) is a new program that provides parent education and support services for Loudoun County families, including guidance to help families balance their work and home lives, as well as to ensure the health and well-being of their children.
The Youth and Family Support ServicesProgram assists families with youth between the ages of 13-17 experiencing challenging peer and family relationships and life crises by strengthening parental and family relationships through prevention, education, and supportive case management services.
The Youth and Family Support ServicesProgram offersthe following services:
Educational & Supportive Group Services: Individual and group sessions for families and youth at risk of placement in foster care, residential settings, or other out-of-home placements using the evidence based curriculum Parenting Wisely.
Intensive Case Management Services: Short-term, family-focused advocacy, resource coordination and support for families and youth.
We use a crisis management and stabilization approach that considers the impact of trauma and builds upon individual and family strengths, and attributes that mitigate or eliminate risk and enhance well-being.
