Building a Strong Foundation


Mental health is the foundation of everything. It forms the basis of our relationships with others and our ability to be productive members of society.

However, we are all vulnerable. Perhaps we carry emotional scars from a difficult childhood. Or we face the loss of someone we love. Or we can’t seem to emerge from a dark cloud of depression that makes it difficult to meet our day-to-day responsibilities.

Opening doors to mental healthcare so people can cope, heal and thrive.

YFC was founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to quality mental health care when they need it. Too often, the cost of treatment is a barrier for those who need our services. In these cases, we offer fee subsidies to ensure quality care is available for all.

“Simply put, [mental health] treatment works, if you can get it. But in America today, it is clear that many people living with mental illness are not provided with the essential treatment they need.”  —  Michael Fitzpatrick, Executive Director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness

Each year, our generous donors, funders, volunteers, and special events participants make it possible for us to provide over $300,000 in fee subsidies to our clients who demonstrate financial need. The compassion and generosity of people just like you make a world of difference in the lives of the people we serve.
