Referrals can come from anyone including families, friends, neighbors, or other organizations to help with a youth in conflict or support a teen struggling with life issues. Youth are also welcome to self-refer for services and support.
Schools may refer students who have been suspended, expelled, or are exhibiting truant behavior. We also work with other students showing at-risk and behavioral issues within the school.
Officers may bring a youth to YFC because they have committed a crime or have run away from home. YFC will work to connect the youth with their parents while officers return to their other duties. YFC's drop off services save countless officer hours each year!
