The JDPPB has been working with families in Frederick County over the past several years to address the needs and identify gaps in services for youth in Frederick County. Through these interactions, parents have said that the lack of resources and not knowing where to find the resources for youth ages 5-21 is their number one issue.
In response to this, and to go along with The Youth Resource Fair, The JDPPB has created a guide aimed at assisting parents find resources for youth in Frederick County.
