Despite the uncertainty we all face, we are committed to moving forward with our Holiday Gift Program to be sure we can provide holiday wishes and joy for those who need it most. While we know the current climate has affected so many of us in different ways, we hope you can join us to make the holidays brighter for the many local underserved families involved with Youth Services. Holiday Gift is a true reflection of our work to ensure every child grows up happy, healthy, and with hope – and our work has never been more important.

The Holiday Gift Program helps under-served families who look to Youth Services for support. All recipient families have a child or children enrolled in either our Boys & Girls Clubs, Study Buddies, mentor program, individual and group counseling, Pride youth, or crisis intervention services. The families whose wishes you are helping to make possible rely on the simple fact that Youth Services never turns anyone away based on ability to pay.

In FY19, more than $240,000 in mental health counseling was allocated to scholarships for children in need of these services who could not afford them otherwise. This is in addition to the myriad of free programming these children may receive through the other services we provide – all made possible by agency friends like you. If you would like to support Youth Services and the services we provide, please consider making a donation using the button below.
