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 at one of the agency's Achievement Centers, addresses listed below. (View event calendar on homepage for current schedule).
450 Achievement Center, 450 H. Street NW, Washington DC 20001
MLK Achievement Center, 2101 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave, Washington DC 20002
Nourishment and transportation are provided. Please call (202) 299-5003 for additional information.
Caregivers may also ask their youth’s DYRS Care Coordinator about crisis intervention and individual and family counseling.
