Your generous support truly makes a difference in the lives of children, teens, adults and families.

At Youth & Family Counseling (YFC), we believe that everyone should have access to mental healthcare. Online giving is a secure and easy way to help community members who face financial, language or other barriers to treatment receive professional counseling when they need it. Thank you for partnering with us to build healthy individuals, strong families and thriving communities in Lake County!

Many employers will match your personal gift. Please take the time to pursue a matching gift from your company.
