COVID-19 Update:

At HYS, the safety and health of our clients and staff is always our first priority. During this challenging time, we have taken several measures to minimize any unnecessary risks. Until further notice, client Home Passes will be restricted. The only visitors that will be permitted are those on official court-related business, or those providing essential services. All family sessions and meetings must be conducted by phone or video. We will be happy to help parents and caregivers set up video-conferencing sessions or extended phone calls. For more information or to make arrangements, please contact your Unit Manager. 

Thank you for your understanding!
