Rappahannock Area Office On Youth

The Rappahannock Area Office on Youth provides Mandated Services, Residential Services, and Intervention Programs that incorporate leadership opportunities and skill development to promote healthy and responsible behavior in youth and young adults, encourage positive development, and provide support to families. The Rappahannock Area Office on Youth has been serving the Greater Fredericksburg Region since 1989. Our main service categories are Mandated Services, Prevention Programs, and Residential Services. Our mandated programs provide services geared towards meeting court ordered requirements. Our prevention programs are proactive programs designed to support youth in a positive and encouraging manner, and to reduce the possibility of future court involvement. OOY allows parents to directly refer their children to our programs to address behavioral issues and concerns. Our residential services location, known as Chaplin Youth Center, is a 12 bed, community-based, residential facility serving male and female youth ages 12-17.
