Below you will find details of the programs and services we offer. We believe if you change your way of thinking you can change your life. All it takes is a hand up, not a handout.
We are spreading hope, generosity and grace during these troubled times.
We understand that the past couple of years have impacted people of all classes and demographics. In the uncertainty of the world Voices of Our Youth has stepped up to help. We are holding distributions that include items like groceries, hygiene products, baby items, pet supplies, clothing and shoes, blankets, and more.
It is our hope that by providing these necessary items for survival we can reduce the likelihood of child abuse, assault, home invasions, and theft which will reduce the prison pipeline.
Safe Harbor is a pilot program to help unhoused families and those with health risks to find the services they need to solidify and maintain permanent housing.

Voices Cares is a program developed to reduce the involvement of the Department of Children and Family Services and at the same time decreasing the negative perception that law enforcement has within the community and helping to keep families together.

We help youth to meet the challenges of adolescence into adulthood while helping them to achieve their full potential.
Voices of Our Youth strongly believes in positive youth development to help them succeed in life. This means helping them navigate difficult life changes and dealing with the challenges they face at home while transitioning into adulthood.
Creating healthy and supportive relationships are crucial to success and helps to build a positive network of supportive adult relationships. It’s all about teaching them how to develop emotional bonds with the adults around them. Our youth must create thoughtful, compassionate, stable, lifelong relationships to successfully navigate through life. These relationships help strengthen their sense of identity, help to develop confidence about the future, help them to act in their best interests, as well as improving their social, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral competencies.
We believe in providing our youth with the encouragement and advice needed to achieve their goals. We encourage them to engage with their families, communities, neighborhoods, and/or governments so that they are empowered to reach their full potential.
Community outreach means providing assistance to a group of people who may not otherwise have access to services. Services are performed where those in need are located. Our outreach program's focus is to improve learning, promote civic engagement, and strengthen communities through addressing their societal needs.
We create partnerships between the communities, neighborhoods, families, military, educational institutions, organizations, businesses, religious organizations, law enforcement, military personnel, and dignitaries for the betterment of our communities.
We work collaboratively with families to provide a strength-based process through which professionals, families and youth build positive goal-oriented relationships. Parent engagement focuses on responsive relationship building and promotes positivity, enduring change for youth, families, neighborhoods, and communities.

We work with other organizations to rescue individuals from sex trafficking, sexual exploitation, forced labor or involuntary servitude, and organ trafficking. We help bring the victims to safety and connect them with resources so they can begin to rebuild their lives.
