About the Family & Youth Services Bureau (new)
What We Do
The mission of the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) is to promote safety, stability, and well-being for people who have experienced or been exposed to violence, neglect or trauma. FYSB achieves this through supporting programs that provide shelter, community services and prevention education for youth, adults and families.
FYSB is made up of two divisions that house three major grant programs:
Division of Adolescent Development and Support
- Runaway & Homeless Youth Program
- Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program
Division of Family Violence Prevention and Services
- Family Violence Prevention & Services Program

Our Driving Principle: Positive Youth Development (PYD)
FYSB encourages communities to support young people through Positive Youth Development (PYD). This concept is founded on evidence that certain positive influences at home, at school and in the community prevent young people from making poor choices and help them to succeed. Building up those positive influences, PYD helps young people transition through difficult times and prepares them for college, work and life.
