Change Someone’s Life Story!

Following the pandemic, YFC continues to see a significant need for expanded mental healthcare services. Our counselors and staff strive to offer counseling sessions for as many people as possible, including uninsured, underinsured, and low-income children, teens, adults, couples, and families in Lake County.

Plan to participate in our Year-End Campaign! With your help, we’ll be able to close the gap on service demands by providing access to counseling for all, no matter someone’s ability to pay.
