DYS touches the lives of thousands of youth in Ohio. Beyond youth in DYS facilities and those on parole, DYS funds and supports nearly 600 community programs throughout the state offering 79,000 youth (based on annual program admissions) opportunities and services to encourage positive change. These range from prevention and diversion programs to residential treatment and community treatment in areas such as mental health, sex offending and substance abuse.
The map below depicts DYS facilities and offices, as well as community facilities, programs and initiatives in partnership with Ohio's counties. While all counties receive dollars from the Department through the Subsidy Grant (RECLAIM Ohio and/or the Youth Services Grant), this map identifies the locations of facilities and the more focused community-based initiatives.
