From our President & CEO
At The Family & Youth Services Bureau, we take to heart the words “All Kids Matter” and have embraced that phrase as our motto and vision for many years.
In each of the 18 programs and services we offer to the community our staff and volunteers make sure that every child, and every family receives the respect and guidance they need to create a better life.
We believe that everyone, no matter what their background or behavior deserves a chance to become a more responsible person. Doing so makes us a stronger community, and we all benefit.
Lisa Jordan President & CEO
Invest in Your Community
We consider each and every gift we receive as an investment in not only our agency, but in your community.
When people are able to create a better life for themselves, it benefits us all.

Learning Place and Risk Management Programs benefit from Guest Speakers
In October Dawn Finbloom spoke to the parents and youth in the FYSB Learning Place and Risk Management Programs about the Making Good Decisions initiative and the Lifeline Law. Finbloom's presentation focused on the dangers of alcohol and substance abuse in teenagers.
Earlier this fall, participants in these two FYSB Programs were treated to a warm and fuzzy visitor named Gibson, who is a local therapy dog. Gibson makes many trips each year to schools, retirement homes and organizations spreading love and comfort. Program participants learned about how the dog was rescued and the benefits of Gibson's many visits to individuals and groups.
