Mission Statement

RACSB is committed to improving the quality of life for people residing in Planning District 16 with mental health, developmental disability, and substance abuse problems and to preventing the occurrence of these conditions. We do this through an integrated community-based system of care that is responsive to individual needs and choices. We respect and promote the dignity, rights, and full participation of individuals and their families.

What does that mean?

Basically, if you live in the City of Fredericksburg or in one of the counties of Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania or Stafford, we’re here to help you. Our goal is to serve the community by providing desperately needed services for people with behavioral health concerns. And when possible, we’re committed to preventing behavioral health issues before they arise.

We meet these goals by providing a wide array of services. Are you worried that your baby or toddler isn’t meeting developmental milestones? Try our early intervention program. Want to learn how to keep your children from trying drugs or alcohol? Check out our prevention services. Do you or a loved one need counseling? We have licensed therapists. Are you taking psychotropic medications? Our psychiatrists offer medication management. And through a partnership with Genoa Pharmacy, you could pick up your prescriptions at our Fredericksburg clinic. Are you struggling with an addiction? We have a variety of specialized substance abuse services. Do you have a loved one who is addicted to opioids? Try our new Medication-Assisted Treatment and take one of our REVIVE! classes to learn how to reverse an overdose. And while we hope you never need them, we also have emergency services available for crises that happen day or night.

Our mission is to provide this help while respecting the dignity and rights of the individuals we serve and their families. We welcome active participation by the individuals and their families. And we want to help you to make the best choices possible.

Director's Message

Picture of Director Jane Yaun

Hello and welcome to Rappahannock Area Community Services Board (RACSB). My name is Jane Yaun, and I am honored to serve as the organization’s Executive Director. I began my career at RACSB in 1988. This community is my home, and I have been fortunate to be part of RACSB as it has grown into a large size Community Services Board, providing quality services in all five localities. RACSB is committed to improving the lives of individuals in our community through providing excellent service and working collaboratively with our fellow service agencies and community partners.

RACSB is a local government agency which was established in 1970 under what is now Chapter 5 of Title 32 of the Code of Virginia. Our Board of Directors is composed of fifteen volunteer members who are appointed by the local governing bodies. The Board members are people from the community with various occupations and interests, some with lived experience, some who are family members of individuals who receive services. Board members serve three-year terms of office.

I hope you find our website informative, thank you for visiting. We will be updating our content regularly so I encourage you to visit often!
