Comprehensive Services Act
Purpose
The Comprehensive Services Act (CSA) for at-risk youth and families was a law enacted in 1993, by the Virginia General Assembly. This law established a state pool of funds to purchase services for at-risk youth and their families who are mandated for services or targeted for services. The mandated population includes those children who are: 
  • At risk of entering foster care
  • In foster care 
  • Who are seriously emotionally disturbed

The state funds, combined with local community funds, are managed by local interagency teams who plan and oversee services to youth.

Mission
The mission of the CSA is to create a collaborative system of services and funding that is child-centered, family-focused, and community based when addressing the strengths and needs of troubled and at-risk youth and their families in the Commonwealth. In addition, our goal is to provide services in the least restrictive environment. The State Executive Council (SEC) is the supervisory body responsible for the establishment of programmatic and fiscal policies that support the purposes of the CSA. The Office of Comprehensive Services (OCS) is the administrative entity responsible for implementation of the decisions of the SEC.

Administration
The Orange County CSA is administered by the Orange County Office on Youth CSA Coordinator under the direct supervision of the Director of the Office on Youth, County Administrator and the Board of Supervisors. The CSA Coordinator serves on both interagency teams with along with the other local agencies as required by Virginia State law.
