Youth and Family Services provides a safety net for local children and families in various states of crisis. Through a collaborative network of programs, resources and services, this division of the Community and Family Services Department seeks to create empowered and resilient children and families throughout Orange County.
Our network includes residential foster care group homes, a youth shelter, family counseling programs, parent education programs, juvenile probation services, family stabilization resources and mental health counseling for youth.
The following programs are jointly funded by Orange County Government and/or the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice and/or Department of Children and Families (DCF). Most programs are open to all Orange County residents.
