VQ was established in Arizona in 1973 to provide a better alternative to detention centers for youth.

VQ has staff and offices located throughout the State that work directly with youth and families, as well as administrative staff who are familiar with State functions and collaborate regularly with our partners to constantly improve services and create a comprehensive continuum of care.
