Youth Assistance Program
The Westland Youth Assistance Program is located at 36300 Warren Road at the west end of the Westland City Hall. We provide a comfortable waiting area that allows for a private, professional environment to assist Westland families.
Westland youth ages 9 through 17 are referred to Youth Assistance by the police, courts, schools, parents/guardians and other agencies. Once referred, an intake appointment is scheduled to explain the program's services to the youth and parents/guardians, and to offer them the opportunity to discuss their concerns and to ask questions. All information discussed is CONFIDENTIAL.
ALL SERVICES ARE FREE!
The Westland Youth Assistance Program is funded by the City of Westland with additional funds from Wayne County, Detroit Wayne Mental Health Authority (DWMHA), North Brothers Ford, the State of Michigan, Taking Pride in Prevention Initiative grant, and the Westland Rotary Club.
