BUILDING BRIGHTER FUTURES FOR THE COMMUNITY
Our goal is to provide safe, supportive, and empowering services to children and their families. Our goal is to give them the tools and inspiration to resolve their crisis and prepare them to achieve lasting personal changes that will allow them to lead healthy and productive lives. From prevention to aftercare services, Youth Bridge is there every step of the way by providing the best care and therapeutic support, innovative services and activities, guidance and hope to each and every child we encounter.
WHAT MAKES YOUTH BRIDGE UNIQUE?
Youth Bridge is the only Northwest Arkansas Division of Youth Services (DYS) nonprofit for court appointed community-based service and the only approved DYS residential substance abuse program in the state. Youth Bridge is only one of three agencies in Arkansas that operate a Runaway and Homeless Youth program and is the only agency in Arkansas that provides and supports the National Safe Place Program.
Youth Bridge encourages the community to join forces and participate through the many opportunities with advocacy, volunteerism and fundraising.
Youth Bridge is the only clinically and behaviorally focused organization in Northwest Arkansas that provides mental health to children and families and has an exclusive program specifically for youth. Youth Bridge offers counseling and other support services for children and families in both residential, school based, and outpatient environments; offers multi-disciplinary professional teams for better results, and maintains a collaborative approach with other agencies.
Youth Bridge does not turn-away those who need our help because of a payment issue. We accept Medicaid, AR Kids First, and other forms of private insurance, as well as a sliding scale based upon need.
Youth Bridge, founded in 1963 as Boyland in Winslow, Arkansas, by local businessmen to provide housing for homeless and neglected boys, has provided a stable resource for youth services over the years. Beginning as a small custodial-style facility for a limited number of boys, it now stands over 50 years later as an organization that provides youth preventative services, counseling and shelter that strengthens families and builds better communities.
