About Clark County Youth Shelter and Family Services, In
Clark County Youth Shelter & Family Services is dedicated to supporting and promoting the emotional, psychological, and physical well-being of youth and families in Southern Indiana. Since opening in 1986, we have striven to meet the needs of youth in the community through emergency shelter care for youth aged 10 to 19 who are victims of abuse and neglect, are runaways or homeless, and/or are experiencing severe family conflicts. In ongoing evaluation of client needs and agency services we examined the need for a more family focused approach and expanded and implemented programs designed to support and strengthen the entire family. The agency continues to offer emergency care services, but now also offers the following additional services: crisis intervention (Safe Place program); aftercare; information and referral; independent living skill development, and parent education (Family Education and Support program). Through these programs we seek to meet our goals and objectives and strive to achieve our mission, "Serving youth and families in a safe and caring environment."
