New Youth Assessment Centers
Coming Throughout Idaho
Ruth York, Executive Director of Families and Youth of Idaho, explains plans to be involved in the Ada County Assessment Center in the KTVB news spotlight. "The kids are our future, right?" York said. "We cannot have lives waylaid inappropriately. And children need to be able to maximize their full potential. And if we interrupt that by taking them down paths that are not helping them to do that then we're just, we're hurting our future."
Seven youth assessment centers are being developed across Idaho. Each center proposed aims to meet the unique community needs. FYIdaho's Family Support Line and Youth Programs currently provide community support for families throughout the state.
Youth crisis centers, for behavioral or mental health crisis, are currently in the proposal phase and will be created throughout Idaho.
