About Us


Welcome to Vashon Youth & Family Services

For nearly 40 years, Vashon Youth & Family Services (VYFS) has provided human services to residents of Vashon-Maury Island, Washington. The mission of Vashon Youth and Family Services is to foster a thriving community of emotionally healthy and resilient children, youth, adults and families.

The agency began as a one-room organization providing counseling and job placement services. Today, VYFS is the primary social services agency on the island, providing an array of prevention and intervention services. It is the sole licensed community mental health agency on Vashon Island. Services - including individual and family counseling, enriched out of school time care, family support, programs for at-risk youth, and emergency assistance, are aimed at nurturing the emotional wellness of all Island residents.
