Rappahannock Area Office on YouthThe CHINS Program was designed for children and parents who are going through difficult times.
The CHINS Program offers comprehensive services for at-risk youth and their families. It offers an opportunity to explore options before a family situation ends up in court.
“Child In Need of Services” refers to a child whose behavior, conduct or condition presents or results in a serious threat to the well-being and physical safety of the child.
“Child in Need of Supervision” refers to a child who is repeatedly truant from school, repeatedly runs away from home, or repeatedly disobeys their parents/guardian or other authority.
The CHINS Program understands that the issues often faced by families experiencing such difficulties are multifaceted, high in tension, and crisis oriented. It is important to develop communication and service links between the family, schools, and service providers. It is important to help direct and inform families of their pre-court options.

Sea CadetsSince 1958 the Naval Sea Cadet Corps has been committed to providing American youth with a drug and alcohol free environment to foster their leadership abilities, broaden their horizons through hands-on training and guide them to becoming mature young adults.
Sea Cadet organizations exist in most of the maritime nations of the world. Recognizing the value of these organizations in educating youth in maritime matters, the Department of the Navy requested the Navy League of the United States to establish a similar program for American youth. The Navy League agreed to do so and formally established the Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) and Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) in 1958. Recognizing the importance and benefits of the NSCC, Congress on September 10, 1962 federally incorporated the Naval Sea Cadet Corps under Public Law 87-655 (36 USC 1541).
