To partner with at-risk and special needs children, youth and young adults to build a happier, healthier, more hopeful lives within their families and communities.
Each day YCS provides services to thousands of New Jersey families who have children, birth – adulthood, with special needs. Some of the children at our group homes are separated from their loved ones and have been affected by trauma, others are affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities that adversely affect their behavior. Many families receive the intensive in-home and community support that enables their families to stay together. Whatever the need, the caring YCS staff is prepared to offer individualized educational, mental health and/or behavioral health programming. With your support, we can help every individual find hope, and cultivate strength and resilience for a brighter future.
