Our Mission and Vision
The mission of Dominion Youth Services is to enrich the lives of the people we serve by instilling in them a belief that they have the capabilities to achieve their goals. We provide programs that allow individuals to develop the skills necessary for success. Our staff are supportive and caring individuals who are trained to carry out our mission. We strive to be the premier provider of a broad array of services to include mental health, education, intellectual disabilities, and autism.
In 1999, Dominion Youth Services (DYS) was established in Richmond, Virginia by four passionate individuals who set out to enrich the lives of children and youth by providing therapeutic services. Over the years, our services have evolved and expanded to meet the needs of our communities. Today, DYS provides a complete spectrum of services throughout the Commonwealth and serves all ages from pre-school to the elderly. Our experienced staff of over 400 professionals use evidence-based practices and a holistic wraparound model to ensure positive, successful outcomes for the individuals we serve.
