Directions For Youth & Families is one of central Ohio’s oldest and largest mental and behavioral health organizations serving youth and their families for 117 years. We believe that every child has value and potential, and every day we work to help our communities young people build skills to be successful individuals.
With your support DFYF can continue to provide services to more than 8,000 youth and their families. Our programs help to address issues such as truancy, delinquency, sexual/physical, substance abuse, domestic violence and mental health issues.
In addition, your help allows us to operate two after school/summer camp youth centers. These centers provide opportunities for youth in underprivileged neighborhoods to be in a safe, fun environment with recreational and educational activities.
