Lynchburg Juvenile Services provides comprehensive, collaborative, and quality services that empower youth and families, and together, we create a model community.
Lynchburg Juvenile Services will provide customer-driven quality services that come from well-managed resources, collaborative relationships, and on-going evaluation.
The purpose of Community/Juvenile Services is to serve at-risk youth and families who are before a Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court by providing a continuum of services that include prevention, early intervention, residential services, home- based services and secure detention. Programs are based on a restorative justice model which emphasizes public safety, accountability, and rehabilitation.
The Juvenile Services Director provides leadership and supervision to the division's residential youth programs: Lynchburg Regional Juvenile Detention Center, Lynchburg Youth Group Home (formerly Opportunity House and SPARC House), and the non-residential programs: post-dispositional services, Outreach Detention Services (GPS), Community Casework Services, Residential Aftercare Program, Youth and Prevention Services, and Comprehensive Services Act (CSA).
