YFA Connections Services

Youth and Family Services



The Regional Crisis Residential Center provides temporary shelter and crisis counseling for youth ages 12 through 17 who are in conflict with their family, have run away from home, are at risk of running away, or are homeless. 

While family reunification is the ultimate goal, the need for alternate resources may be identified.  Our services address strengthening family relationships, providing linkages to appropriate community services, encouraging stable living conditions and assisting youth in planning a healthy future course of action.

Youth who stay at the Crisis Residential Center receive individual, group and family counseling tailored to their personal needs with the goal of addressing the issues related to running away and/or homelessness.

The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) licenses the Regional Crisis Residential Center for services. Services are funded by the Department of Commerce and donations from local community members.
