Although friends and family provide support, sometimes short-term professional help can make a huge difference.
The Youth Council is unique for its array of effective programs that span early intervention and treatment for a variety of challenges inherent in raising teens. Unlike other youth agencies, we don't enjoy a national brand; however that enables us to remain nimble, responsive and creative as community needs emerge.
Since 1974, we have grown to serve as a first point-of-contact for greater Nashua, New Hampshire families struggling with acting out youth, parenting difficulties, alcohol and drug problems, and lack of school success. We also track outcomes for everything we do.
We offer best-practice programs to 700 greater Nashua children and teens each year, and strive to strengthen families, improve risky decisions and reduce involvement with the juvenile justice system. Our mission is to build strong families- free from abuse, addiction, and court involvement with the help of our dedicated Board of Directors and talented Staff.
Our children and teens come from all walks of life, with all income levels, family structures and stressors. Grants through United Way, City of Nashua and private foundations, along with community donations, allow us to offer sliding scale fees for some services and keep costs low for others.
We are proud to have been recognized locally and nationally for our commitment to excellence and look forward to meeting you!
