The mission of Youth Villages is to help children and families live successfully.
Youth Villages is a private nonprofit organization dedicated to helping emotionally and behaviorally troubled children and their families live successfully through innovative, research-based programs.
Youth Villages' commitment to helping troubled children and their families find success spans 20 years and includes a comprehensive array of programs and services:
Treatment Foster Care
Transitional Living Services
Specialized Crisis Services
Intensive Residential Treatment
Our programs use the principles of evidence-based treatment models, including Multisystemic Therapy (MST.)
Founded in 1986, Youth Villages helps more than 17,000 children and families every year from more than 20 states and Washington, D.C., through a wide array of programs, including intensive in-home services, residential treatment, foster care and adoption, transitional living services, mentoring and crisis services. Youth Villages’ focus on strengthening families consistently produces an 80 percent success rate of children living successfully at home even two years after completing a Youth Villages program.
