About Us
Founded in 1952 by the Junior League of Wilmington, Delaware Guidance Services for Children & Youth, Inc. (DGS) has grown from a one-psychiatrist operation in loaned space, to the largest single not-for-profit provider of comprehensive psychiatric services for children and their families in Delaware with a staff of 200, a budget of $12M, and five locations statewide.

As we look to the future, we will strive to make our services more accessible by increasing our outreach into the community and forming new partnerships with other organizations. With the expansion of research on the brain and mental health issues, new and more effective treatments are being developed.  DGS stands committed to keeping abreast of these new treatments and utilizing a best practice approach to making them available to our clients.
