Youth For Tomorrow
Youth For Tomorrow has served “the least, the lost and the lonely” children in our communities since 1986. We serve boys and girls who have been abandoned or abused by family, are homeless, are expelled from public schools or in need of therapeutic intervention to address their mental health issues.
We are committed to providing a safe, healthy and motivating environment on our 200 acre campus.
Our mission is to provide them the opportunity to focus their lives and develop the confidence, skills, intellectual ability, spiritual insight and moral integrity to become responsible and productive members of society.
Youth For Tomorrow provides Emergency Shelter Care for unaccompanied minor children under a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement. The program, called the Youth For Tomorrow Unaccompanied Immigrant Minor (UIM) Program, operates twenty-four hours per day, three hundred sixty-five days per year. The program serves both male and female UIM residents.
Youth For Tomorrow provides external programs to children and/or families who are experiencing conflicts in the home, school, or community. The goal is to strengthen the family by teaching children and adolescents a healthy way to communicate, resolve their conflicts and develop healthy relationships. YFT staff will provide immediate, short-term support to children and families in a crisis as well as those requiring longer term mental health support. YFT’s external programs offer flexible individualized services and assists families in connecting with informal supports in their community.
