During and After Your Child’s Commitment
During the time of your child’s commitment to DYRS, there may be additional information, support or services that are not available through the Agency. The same may be true after your child’s commitment to DYRS has ended. If you have questions during your child’s commitment or seek additional assistance as commitment comes to an end, feel free to talk with your child’s Care Coordinator, Credible Messenger, or Family Engagement Specialist about your needs and concerns. The DYRS team is committed to highlighting points of connection, resources and more to ensure families have information that can help meet a range of needs.
