For 45 years, YSS has been a leading, state-wide organization that serves more than 10,000 children, youth and families annually. Through a comprehensive offering of prevention, treatment, transition and child welfare programs, YSS gives children and youth a place to find their voice. We strive to help every youth heal with compassion, make healthy choices, feel safe and secure, learn life skills, grow their confidence, and ultimately, stand strong.

Our program offerings include emergency shelter and services, transitional living programming, and aftercare support for youth who age out of the foster care system and/or are non-system involved (e.g. not placed or directly supported by a governmental payment agency).
