Since 1968, when we have seen an unmet need and youth struggling in Central Oregon, we have added programs to help them. We now have eight separate programs, each providing a spectrum of services. We are the largest social services organization helping youth in Central Oregon.

Central to all of our programs is the idea that our thoughts and beliefs influence our choices, and our choices define our futures. If we can learn recognize unhelpful thoughts and mistaken beliefs, we can choose a brighter future.

Links to our programs are below, or see an overview here.

Our Impact

Facilitating positive change for youth: our goal is to see youth succeed as happy, healthy adults who contribute to their families and their community. 

We believe in the importance of each child, focusing on their strengths and building resilience. We are proud of the hard work they do while they are with us to change their thinking and behaviors
