Improving lives of individuals, families, and communities through counseling, education, and support.
Directions for Youth & Families impacts over 5,500 youth and their families each year through mental, emotional and behavioral health services. We are a resiliency-oriented, trauma-informed agency working and training with experts and educators. Through counseling, education and support programs we are proud of the impact we have in contributing to a healthy community – one individual, one family at a time.
You can get involved with DFYF by supporting our events and celebrating our youth.
Mark your calendar for our signature State of the Child Luncheon May 8th at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. It’s our 30th year for this event and our youth center kids are already working on their dance and music performances and art pieces. We hope you can join us to celebrate our youth and families.
Your support means everything to us. When you donate to DFYF programs and services you make hope, healing and resiliency possible for central Ohio youth and their families.
