Values are the foundation of our organization.
In everything we do, we believe that all youth should have the opportunity to reach their full potential. The work we do is to serve those youth that are impacted by circumstances that may have an adverse effect on their well-being. Our goal is to provide safe, supportive, and empowering services to teens and their families that will 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 youth 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 residence 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 is the only clinically and behaviorally focused organization in Northwest Arkansas that deals exclusively with youth and their families. Youth Bridge offers counseling and other support services with children and families in both residential 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 encourages the community to join forces and participate through the many opportunities with advocacy, volunteerism and fundraising.
