They Can't Wait
A Commitment to Children & Familes.
To promote resiliency and assist children, youth, and families in achieving their greatest potential.
Individuals and families who are associated with the agency as clients or as staff members heal from trauma, feel safe from threat, are able to identify and build on individual and family strengths, gain independence, achieve serenity, and enhance their quality of life.
We Love What We Do!
The Youth Service Bureau strives to create a stable, caring, and secure environment where staff and clients can develop the necessary skills to improve personal traits, attitudes, behaviors, and relationships. We will achieve this by respectfully communicating with youth and families, with others within the organization and those in the community we serve. Our goal is to develop personal and professional integrity though honesty and ethical practices and establish this organization as one of the leaders in advocating for youth and families.
