For assistance and information on your youth’s status with the agency, caregivers may contact the DYRS Hotline, where an agency representative will provide you with the name and phone number of your youth’s case manager or social worker. If possible, the representative will reach out to the case manager or social worker on your behalf.
DYRS Hotline: 9am-5pm (202) 535-2773
