About Delaware Guidance Services (DGS)

Mission: DGS’ mission is to provide quality therapeutic services to children, youth, and their families to increase their social, emotional, and behavioral wellness.

DGS’ behavioral health services include outpatient counseling, community-based trauma support, parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT), school-based counseling, therapeutic classrooms, and professional development training. Through DGS, children and families requiring a more intense therapy protocol have continuous access to Outpatient Therapeutic Support for Families (OP/TSF), Family-Based Treatment (FBT), and Mobile Response and Stabilization Services (MRSS).

The families we serve come from diverse backgrounds (57% Caucasian, 38% African American, and 5% Hispanic). Over 80% of children served by DGS receive Medicaid and approximately 90% of DGS clients have household incomes under $30,000.
