Programs Helping Youth with Challenges
Here at The Youth Council our programs focus on helping youth who may be facing personal and emotional challenges. Some of these challenges may be behavioral difficulties, drug and alcohol misuse, a lack of coping mechanisms and maladaptive social and interpersonal skills.
The Youth Council effectively assists our community’s most vulnerable children and teens. Through our work we have earned the trust of guidance counselors, health care providers, youth workers and parents.
We are committed to providing services at little to no cost. Our programs are funded and supported through local, state and private funding sources. We accept insurance and turn no child away due to a lack of funds.
