Youth In Need is committed to believing in the power of potential and improving the lives of vulnerable children, teens, and families throughout eastern Missouri. This is an ambitious task and we need your help!

You can feel assured that a donation to Youth In Need is a donation to a worthy, charitable cause. Youth In Need is a recipient of the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Seal. This status is awarded to charities that meet 20 standards for accountability, including financial accountability, governance and oversight, effectiveness measures, and open and honest fundraising practices. These are among the most comprehensive measurements applied to nonprofit institutions.

Consider sharing your resources with at-risk children, teenagers and families in our region. With your help, we can continue to serve more than 9,000 individuals each year with infant, child and family development, emergency youth shelter, transitional youth housing, homeless street outreach, counseling and positive youth development programs.
