Our featured community resource for this week’s #FindHelpFriday post is Youth Villages. Although Youth Villages is a national organization, one of its North Carolina locations is right here in Guilford County.
Youth Villages is a private nonprofit organization that is dedicated to helping emotionally and behaviorally troubled children and their families life successfully. They offer community-based counseling through their Multisystemic Therapy (MST) program, which is an evidence-based model for helping youth between the ages of 12 and 17 who have exhibited serious antisocial behaviors and are at-risk for placement out of the home due to these behaviors. They also provide a YVLifeSet Program in our community, which supports youth who are aging out of foster care so that they can have a successful transition into adulthood.
According to Tara Ward, Youth Villages’ Regional Supervisor for our area, “I am most proud that we stay true to our mission of helping children and families live successfully and to our values. In doing this, we have build strong relationships with community partners in Guilford County.” We are honored for Tara to serve as one of our HRI Steering Committee members as well!
