Youth and Family Services was established in 1976.  ​



   "To serve and strengthen youth and families."

      It is the mission of Youth and Family Services to serve youth (ages 5+), adults, and families through a continuum of counseling, educational, residential, and support services. Our Purpose is to help our clients function successfully personally, in relationships with others, and with others, and within the home, school, work, and other social environments. This is done through interventions designed to strengthen the emotional, psychological, and behavioral health of those we serve.

​     Within our philosophy, "To serve" implies a genuine interest and concern for the needs of others and a commitment to remain consumer-focused in all of our policies and practices. "To strengthen" implies a commitment to give one's very best in meeting those needs through quality services and skilled interventions, proven effective in achieving the desired results.

​     Y&FS welcomes every person seeking help and provides integrated services and support in a manner that demonstrates hospitality and respect and offers choices. Every door is a "Right Door" for seeking assistance. Y&FS strives to consistently provide recovery-oriented, culturally competent, trauma-informed, and co-occurring capable services.
