The Friends of Youth Foundation

…a powerful way to ensure the youth of tomorrow have the safe places, caring support, and healthy relationships they need to succeed.

Friends of Youth provides services to youth and their families through three core program areas:

  • Child Welfare Services, providing therapeutic residential services, emergency shelter, and extended foster care;
  • Youth and Family Services, providing mental health counseling, substance use disorder treatment, school-based prevention education, parenting programs, and home visiting in the school district communities of  Issaquah, Snoqualmie Valley, and Riverview;
  • Homeless Youth Services, providing street outreach, drop-in overnight shelter, individual case management, employment, education, and housing programs for homeless youth and young adults throughout East and North King County and South Snohomish County.

Your support of our work is much appreciated. If you would like to learn more about Friends of Youth, please let us know. We welcome the opportunity to show you the many ways your support makes a difference in the lives of the young people we serve.
