From our President & CEO
As we all try to adapt to the changing and challenging weather this season, please remember all the people who are also experiencing changes in their lives.
Our clients at The Family & Youth Services Bureau are community members who come to us in crisis, and through our programs and services we offer them an opportunity to create a new path for their 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!
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.

Babies and toddlers need diapers….a lot of diapers!
At The Tot Shop, the requests for kids diapers is never ending.
We are asking the community to help us with this effort by collecting a total of 311 boxes or packages of diapers during this drive from April 3 – 11, 2014.
This amount represents a year’s supply of diapers for the Tot Shop, and will insure that we will always have enough for our clients and their children.
The Tot Shop is an incentive-based program where young parents can shop for needed baby and toddler supplies. However, the items are not given away and they can’t be purchased with money.
Parents must EARN coupons by going to doctor visits, checkups for their kids, getting immunizations, attending parenting classes and nutrition workshops—doing things that educate them to be better parents. They receive coupons after attending these activities, and exchange their coupons for needed supplies like diapers, clothing, beds, and books.
