Youth In Need proactively partners with policy makers, corporations, charitable foundations and individuals to secure resources that support its mission. Youth In Need’s primary funding sources include Federal program grants, State of Missouri contracts for youth services, Community and Children’s Resource Board of St. Charles County, St. Louis County Children's Service Fund, and the United Way of Greater St. Louis.
Agency administration and the Board of Directors are keenly aware that federal, state and local funds are secure only for the awarded grant or contract periods. So that Youth In Need is not overly dependent on government funding, it has successfully secured a range of diverse state, local and private funding sources. Youth In Need’s sustained growth in size, scope, quality, innovation and leadership in delivering children, teen and family services would not be possible without substantial support from individuals, corporations and charitable foundations. 
Youth In Need’s annual budget is $25 million.
