From our President & CEO
Let me take this opportunity to extend warm holiday greetings to everyone on behalf of the Board of Directors, the staff and the volunteers of the Family & Youth Services Bureau.
All of us feel very blessed by all the good things in our lives; even the challenges we encounter allow us to gain knowledge and incorporate new ideas into each day.
At this time, please remember those in our community who are less fortunate. That person could be your elderly neighbor who could benefit from a visit; a family who doesn’t have funds for presents; or a teen who needs someone to talk to.
Also, the Family & Youth Services Bureau offers you the opportunity to make a gift this holiday season online, using the “Donate” link directly underneath this message. Your donation will assist youth and families when they choose the opportunity to create a new path for their life. Thank you for your generosity!

Our Featured Donors
Ray and Lila Cohen
"When I first moved here many years ago, I was involved with the League of Women Voters. I became aware at that time that the Family & Youth Services Bureau, although always very low-key, was one of the local agencies that did a good job for our community,” says Lila Cohen.
Lila and husband Ray both commented about the stability FYSB brings to youth and families through counseling services. “The programs and services give people a sense of worth, give them a chance to create a better life,” they note. “We donate to FYSB because we know the funds will be invested well.”
We thank the Cohens for their annual donations to our agency, and also for their generous community spirit!
