Our Mission & Purpose

To provide quality, comprehensive training and services to protect the well-being and safety of children and youth 19 years of age or less and to strengthen families in Lafayette County.

A community where all children of 19 years of age or less and their families of Lafayette County can reach their full potential in a supportive and nurturing environment.


Education and care givers are a strength to provide expertise necessary to accomplish our mission. Our board’s first priority is to act as a team which is responsible to select educators and service providers and fund such activities to the extent of existing funds.



Continuous improvement is essential to our success. We are committed to the process to implement improvement, ongoing education, and enhancement of services.



Education and Services, and interactions with youth and their family are ethically and professionally conducted. We strive to earn the respect of the youth, their families, the community, and the mental health industry. Our doors are open to all without discrimination or regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, non-disqualifying handicap, age, or economic status.



Commitment to selection and use of only trained educators and proven services and avoidance of administrative overhead and unnecessary facility expenses, so that the tax payer’s funds receive the most direct use for the youth and their families.
