To build on the strengths of children, youth and families so they find safety, hope and success in life.
Youth In Need, founded 43 years ago, is a nonprofit child and family services agency. Through a variety of crisis prevention and intervention programs, Youth In Need is dedicated to building positive futures for the community’s most vulnerable children, teens and families.
Each year, Youth In Need serves more than 9,000 children and youth with residential group homes, homeless street outreach, early childhood education, infant, child and family development, youth and family counseling and support groups, teen parent services and foster care case management for children of all ages and their families. Services are offered at nearly 100 locations throughout the eastern Missouri region (St. Louis City and St. Louis, St. Charles, Lincoln, Warren and Montgomery Counties). Youth In Need is also the regional provider of the national Safe Place program, which partners with area businesses to offer 'safer places' to children and teens in crisis.
It is through the generous support of community volunteers, business leaders and donors that Youth In Need has been able to continue its mission of believing in the power of potential.
