Every single day I walk in the front door of Youth Services for Oklahoma County, I am grateful. I am grateful for those who value youth who are marginalized in our community. I am grateful for a dedicated staff who, often times, do miraculous work with the youth we serve. I am most grateful for the trust these young people have and the vulnerability they show to adults who were just moments ago, strangers to them.

Our new "Changing Young Lives" tours gives you, friends, family members or colleagues the opportunity to learn first-hand about the inspiring stories of our youth and our dedicated staff working to make a difference in the lives of the young people we serve. Our doors are open, the welcome mat is out and we’re waiting for you!

Check out dates for upcoming tours and reserve your spot today by contacting Melanie Anthony at 405-235-7537 or .

Young lives in our community are being changed every day because of your support and the work being doing by our staff. Thank you for your part in “Changing Young Lives."

Bring Joy and Magic to Their Holidays

The end of October is here. It’s the time of year that brings together family and friends to celebrate all things associated with the beginning of fall, the onset of winter and, of course, the holiday season.

But, what are the holidays like when you are a teenager spending the holidays alone?

One Family's Story of Resilience  

The holiday season is a time for friends, family and peace on Earth. But, on Christmas night, 2016, three bullets ripped through the still night air - forever changing the lives of one family.
