Since 1976, Northwest Youth Services has been the doorway to safety and the pathway to progress for thousands of young lives. Much has changed in our communities during those years. What has not changed is our commitment to supporting the uniqueness of each youth served.
For runaway, homeless, “throw-away”, abused, neglected and other at-risk youth and young adults, we are their lifeline. NWYS’s mission is: to collaborate with at-risk, runaway and homeless youth to foster self-reliance.
Throughout the years, NWYS has specialized in helping youth who have been marginalized by their choices or simply because of who they are. We believe in the inherent dignity of each young person we serve.
