Detained Youth

Detained youth are housed at one of the following detention programs:

Youth Services Center (YSC)

YSC is an 88-bed secure detention facility that provides youth with 24-hour supervision, care, and custody. Services include diagnostic screenings, onsite medical care, individual and group counseling, education provided by the DC Public Schools (DCPS), structured recreational activities, and family visits.

Community-Based Shelter Homes

DYRS contracts with providers to run community-based shelter homes. While residing at the shelter home, youth receive supervision and support services and attend school within the community.

Intensive Third-Party Monitoring (ITPM)

Youth remain in the family home but are monitored up to three times per day to help ensure that the youth attends school, appointments, and all scheduled court dates.
