Program administrator Elizabeth Spring says Youth and Family Services has been working out of temporary offices at the detention center since black mold cropped up at the former location.

"It was never actually a large enough space for us to serve our families," Spring says, "and in terms of delivering health services we would need to have a larger space to do that, although about half of our services are delivered in the community."

Spring says the new facility will help Youth and Family Services better serve the needs of clients. 

Youth and Family Services will be open at its new location at 2140 Ellsworth Road starting Wednesday.
