The DYRS Anchored in Strength Family Support Group lets parents and guardians share their thoughts and feelings about their youth’s connection to DYRS, learn about agency resources available to them and their youth, and receive peer support from fellow parents and guardians.
The support group meets every other Monday, from 6:30-8 pm at the Bread for the City Office at 1640 Good Hope Road SE. See the attached flyer for a schedule of upcoming meetings. Please call (202) 716-8216 for additional information.
Caregivers may also ask their youth’s DYRS case manager or social worker about crisis intervention and individual and family counseling.
