Youth and Family Support Services assists Loudoun County families with youth between the ages of 11-17 experiencing challenging peer and family relationships and life crises. Youth and Family Support Services helps strengthen parental and family relationships through prevention, education, and supportive case management services. These services are offered within a strengths-based, trauma-informed and protective/promotive factors framework.
Families and youth may participate in individual sessions or multi-family group sessions that use the evidence-based curriculum – Parenting Wisely. We work with families to understand the barriers and behaviors that may be impacting the family dynamic; share information on parenting styles and adolescent development; and teach coping strategies to help improve communication and create mutual respect. In addition, the curriculum can also assist families with developing family contracts and safety plans, as needed.
