Why Youth Homes matters

Youth Homes focuses on helping young people rebuild their lives and infusing hope and possibility into families, just as we have been doing for more than 50 years. We weave the expertise of professionals, the compassion of our dedicated community members and the resourcefulness of our youth and families into something that can feel like magic. 

But it’s not magic. It’s extraordinarily hard work for youth, families, staff, and volunteers. And that hard work leads directly to successful outcomes — healthier families, children who believe in themselves and their potential, and communities that support young people and their futures. 

We believe in optimism, hard work and the human capacity to change and grow. Leading productive, meaningful lives is way better than magic. The work of our staff, the families, and our young people who are so intent on finding their way — all this inspires us to step up to the challenge. 

We invite you to learn more. Whether you decide to support Youth Homes financially, become an employee, foster parent, or volunteer — you can have a transformative influence on young people.
