Programs & Services
Stanford Sierra Youth & Families (SSYAF) believes each and every child deserves the love, safety, and unconditional commitment of a family and the opportunity to develop as a healthy and productive young adult.
We provide a continuum of care to empower youth and families to overcome challenges together, as well as connects youth in foster care to the permanent loving families they need and deserve. This includes the following array of comprehensive programs: family advocacy and support; behavioral and mental health services; juvenile justice intervention, mentoring, foster care, adoption services, and pre- and post-adoption support.
We support the entire family with professional treatment and compassionate care, so every youth has the opportunity to thrive at home, in school, and in the community. In the coming year, our community-based programs will benefit approximately 4,500 youth and families throughout Northern California, including Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado, Nevada, Yolo, Napa, and San Joaquin counties.
