About LPYS

It is the mission of La Plata Youth Services to prevent youth from entering and further penetrating the juvenile justice system. While holding paramount the safety of the public, we build on the unique strengths of each adolescent and focus on positive youth development.

We help these youth by including their families and community in supporting an individual intervention service.

We strive to reduce the rate of recidivism or relapse, reduce out-of-home placement, and guide their participation in becoming healthy and productive members of their community.

Contact us if there is an individual or situation we can help you with.
