National Youth Advocate Program (NYAP)
The National Youth Advocate Program (NYAP) has provided cost effective, community based services and support to children, youth and families since 1978. We offer flexible, creative, outcome based solutions to meet the unique needs of the communities we serve and the individual needs of the youth and families involved in our programs.
During the 38 years of NYAP’s existence, we have watched the child welfare community evolve from being almost singularly focused on working with children identified as abused, neglected, dependent or delinquent, to the philosophy we have embraced since 1978; that the primary focus must be holistically placed on preserving and unifying families and strengthening the communities they call home. This strongly validates the core values of NYAP’s founder in 1978 and of everyone associated with NYAP today.
Thanks to a broad continuum of care, we have the flexibility to tailor our services to meet the needs of the agencies we partner with and the children, and families we are privileged to serve.
NYAP’s revenue is generated by governmental contracts, which is represented by over 200 contracts for services at any given time. NYAP has consistently earned high marks from independent auditors for its stewardship of the program’s funds.
