Welcome to Youth Villages’ first North Carolina newsletter

February 22, 2010

Annie Smith, NC State Director

Youth Villages is pleased to offer our first newsletter for friends and families in North Carolina.

Since 2005, Youth Villages has partnered with local governments, community agencies, schools, mental health professionals and others to serve troubled children and their families.

We are excited about the partnerships we have built in communities across the state and the positive outcomes we continue to see.

This newsletter allows us to periodically share what Youth Villages is doing, as well as stories of the young people with whom we work.

During the past five years, we have experienced tremendous growth, serving more than 1,600 youth through the mental health and juvenile justice systems.

We opened nine regional offices across the state and employ more than 130 dedicated and caring professionals to fulfill our mission. Plans are also under way to deliver Youth Villages’ programs and services to the Fayetteville area.

Financial support from The Duke Endowment has helped us expand our Multisystemic Therapy program into underserved areas of the state, and funding from The Day Foundation has enabled us to establish the New Day program, which promotes independent living skills for youth aging out of foster care, in three regions of our state.

North Carolina continues to be at the forefront of sweeping changes in mental health reform, which presents challenges but also provides a path toward more efficient and effective care delivery.

Accountability, cost-effective care and high-quality treatment are priorities in the state’s complex network of care support, and Youth Villages is providing needed care across the state that meets the highest of these standards.

We are proud of our efforts so far, but there is still so much work to do.

For information on Youth Villages in North Carolina and our services, please contact your local office.
