The Family Court Social Services Division (FCSSD) is the District’s juvenile probation agency. FCSSD is responsible for serving and supervising juveniles involved in the “front-end” of the District’s juvenile justice system. Those juveniles include: all newly arrested youth entering the Court system in juvenile delinquency cases, Persons In Need of Supervision (PINS) cases and truancy cases, probation, and diversion matters. FCSSD currently has an average of 1,600 juveniles under its supervision. The mission of the Family Court Social Services Division (FCCSD) is to assist in the rehabilitation of youth through the provision of comprehensive services and probation supervision with an eye toward public safety to prevent recidivism and protect the community. FCSSD is responsible for all youth involved in DC’s juvenile justice system who are not committed to the Department of Youth Rehabilitative Services, that is those who are awaiting trial and those on probation.
