The 28th Court Service Unit provides domestic and delinquent intake services, juvenile probation and parole services to Washington County, Smyth County and the City of Bristol. We partner with Highlands Community Services and Mount Rogers Community Services, as well as numerous private providers, to provide services and support to court-involved youth and their families.
For youth on probation and parole, court service unit staff have access to a variety of contracted services including assessments and evaluations, individual therapy, family therapy, substance abuse treatment, therapy for youth with sexualized behaviors, and life skills coaching. CSUs access these services through DJJ's contracted regional service coordinators. A directory of services available through DJJ's RSC Model is available at: https://www.amikids.org/amikids-virginia/vendor-directory
We offer placement opportunities for undergraduate and graduate level students. Students are exposed to a wide variety of experiences in the juvenile justice system including intake processing, social history preparation, probation case management, direct care services, parole planning, and court procedure. Please call (276) 676-6284 for further details.
