We were founded in 1961, and since then we have provided comprehensive behavioral health services to Alaskan [and non-Alaskan] youths and their families. Many of our clients come to us through the intervention of agencies and organizations dedicated to a child’s well-being. Many of our youths have been homeless. Others come to us through families in desperate search of help for a loved one. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding our youths, we strive to utilize our trusted experience, genuine compassion, and steadfast dedication to ensure their success.
Our residential services are there for youths facing a variety of situations; from emergency short-term housing to intensive therapy to transitional living. Our community and school-based services allow youths to get the care they deserve while maintaining remaining in a community environment.
At Juneau Youth Services, it is our sincere goal to help at-risk youths succeed, and in doing so, feel hope for their future. Whether we are reuniting children with their families, helping them kick crippling habits, or offering the time and resources they need to transition properly into adulthood, Juneau Youth Services has and will continue to be a place where hope, opportunity, and success are abundant for all.
