Welcome

The route to adulthood is a journey.  For many young people, this journey is difficult, filled with seemingly overwhelming obstacles.  They may make mistakes, lose sight of their destination and leave behind their hope for a bright future.  Their families can become overwhelmed and uncertain about what to do.  Tidewater Youth Services Commission is here to help.

The Commission is a regional public agency, created in 1977 in an effort to coordinate needed services for the juvenile population, thus avoiding a duplication of services in the region.  In close partnership with the Juvenile Courts and Departments of Social Services throughout Hampton Roads, the Commission offers a full continuum of community-based therapeutic services that provide advocacy and assistance to youth and their families as they struggle through the awkward and sometimes troubling transition to adulthood.  We invite you to explore this website to learn more about our efforts to help at-risk and court-involved youth grow into productive members of the community.
