A commitment to serving North Carolina’s most vulnerable youth

September 9, 2011

It’s no doubt that uncertain times lie ahead as state and local governments, corporations, foundations and individuals strive to do more with less.

As a provider that produces outcomes nearly twice the national average while operating at a reduced cost, Youth Villages continues to successfully serve youth and families no matter what the economic outlook. In fact, our strongest partnerships are often formed when the demand for proven, cost-effective services increases.

This growing desire for impactful, efficient services is evidenced by the success of our transitional living program, a service funded primarily through private dollars.

We recently received a generous gift from the Sisters of Mercy of NC Foundation and will serve more than 80 youth across the state this year (read the inspiring story of Gem, a TL participant). In addition, Youth Villages was awarded a grant of $42 million from The Day Foundation of Memphis, Tenn. A large portion of this gift, which requires matching funds, will support the TL program.

As a Critical Access Behavioral Health Agency, Youth Villages continues to grow our evidence-based intensive in-home model, Intercept. After maintaining a full team in our Raleigh-Durham area, we are expanding this service to our Greensboro office in the coming months, with plans to eventually deliver Intercept throughout North Carolina.

While the months ahead may seem ever changing, what remains constant is Youth Villages’ commitment to serving our state’s most vulnerable youth and families through cost-effective programs while helping them find long-term success. Thank you for taking time to learn how Youth Villages is transforming the lives of youth and families across North Carolina.

North Carolina State Director
