Mental Health & Community-Based Services

Y.O.U. offers free, comprehensive counseling services for youth and families.

Mental Health Services are integrated into Y.O.U.'s Out-of-School Time Program for youth in grades 2-12, as well as delivered through a community-based street outreach model at locations where youth gather across our community.

Services provided include:

  • individual, group, and family counseling;
  • comprehensive case management; 
  • targeted street outreach including drop-in services at Robert Crown Community Center;
  • provision of basic gateway services, including food, referrals to shelter, and transportation passes;
  • 24-hour housing crisis response for youth experiencing homelessness;
  • family reunification services, family-generated placements, emergency shelter placements;
  • coordination with local service providers

Our team is made up of social workers, counselors, case managers, and housing crisis response workers who ensure culturally and linguistically-centered care. To access a therapist or to receive case management services, please:
