From our President & CEO
Spring is finally in the air and many in our community are excited about the freshness of the new season.

Even with the promise of seasonal renewal, many people still struggle to keep their family intact and happy. The families we see at the Family & Youth Services Bureau come to us in crisis, dealing with seemingly overwhelming struggles of daily life.

Through our 17 programs and services we work with over 4,000 community residents and help them create a new path in life.

We offer you the chance to help them with that life changing experience by making a gift online, using the “Donate” link directly underneath this message. Thank you for your generosity!

Lisa Jordan President & CEO
Invest in Your Community
We consider each and every gift we receive as an investment in not only our agency, but in your community.

When people are able to create a better life for themselves, it benefits us all.

Click the donate button for an easy and secure way to help the kids and families who receive services from FYSB. Option to use Paypal or Credit Card. Thank You!
