About Us

For over 40 years, Vashon Youth & Family Services (VYFS) has provided services to residents of Vashon-Maury Island. 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 preventive and intervention services. It is the sole licensed community mental health agency on Vashon Island. Services - including individual and family counseling, enriched before and after school child care, family support, programs for at-risk youth,  case management, and crisis stabilization - are provided to support and nurture the emotional wellness of all island residents.
