Youth Villages is a private nonprofit organization
dedicated to helping emotionally and behaviorally
troubled children and their families live successfully.
We help more than 22,000 children and families each year
from more than 20 states and Washington, D.C. Our
Evidentiary Family Restoration™ approach involves
intensive work with the child and family, a focus on
measuring outcomes, keeping children in the community whenever
safely possible, and providing accountability to families and
funders. The EFR approach produces lasting success for children
with success rates twice that of traditional services at one-third
the cost of traditional care.
