Montgomery County Youth Services and our commitment to youth and their families
At MCYS we are committed to working with youth and their families through human services and mental health programs. MCYS was established in 1979 by a group of community leaders who developed juvenile justice prevention services for at-risk youth in the community. MCYS obtained their not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) status in September 1979.
Services available to youth and families:
Conflict in the home, runaways, peer pressure, self-esteem issues, school issues, behavior, grief and divorce, homelessness, abuse, neglect, violence, crisis / emergency intervention, decisions
The agency's seven locations provide direct and indirect services to thousands of youth and families annually. MCYS has strong collaborative relationships with community agencies, businesses, churches and school districts.
Our vision is to be a child's bridge from challenges today to achievements tomorrow.
