Our Partners

J Bar J PartnersJ Bar J Youth Services recognizes that it takes a continuum of services to meet the needs of youth as they encounter different challenges. Our programs are an important aspect of the community response to homeless and runaway teens, school age children facing adversity, teen girls that are struggling in their families and teen boys that have committed a crime. But we cannot do it alone.  Interdependence is a skill we promote for a healthy lifestyle.  In keeping with this value, we would like to acknowledge the many partners we work with to facilitate positive change for youth.
