Our December Sunshine Fund recipient is Washington County Youth Service Bureau. This organization helps youth navigate the challenges of adolescence. They help carve a path to adulthood for young people in Washington County including youth in foster care, youth experiencing abuse or conflict at home, runaway and homeless youth, young parents and young offenders.
Growing up isn’t easy – especially for our most vulnerable youth. Every year, nearly 500 young people ages 12-26 turn to the organization for support to develop skills, confidence and opportunities to positively impact their lives.
Washington County Youth Service Bureau provides counseling and emergency shelter, substance use prevention and treatment, housing supports, foster care transitioning and much more. Many of these programs are at no cost to the client and the organization does not turn anyone away regardless of ability to pay.
Washington County Youth Service Bureau is working to stabilize the lives of youth during times of crisis by helping them take concrete steps to build a better future. Through programming, support and available resources, they build resiliency, life skills, development assets and supportive connections for the next generation.
Your donation online or in the Taproom to the Sunshine Fund this month will be used to provide counseling, mentoring, and housing supports for vulnerable youth in Washington County. For more information and resources, visit their website or call 802.229.9151.
