Isaac Homes Youth Services was first organized in the fall of 2016. Non-profit 501c3 status was granted in August of 2018.
Isaac Homes focuses on a positive youth development approach which gives youth the opportunities to learn skills and develop the assets they need to resist high risk behaviors and succeed in life.
The organization currently has two areas of focus.
1) Teen Center to promote positive choices and assist teens in receiving teh services they need.
2) Long term goal of the provision of a intervention/permanent transitional living program.
The long-term vision is a permanent transitional living facility (independent living/self-sufficiency skills, job placement, counseling, transportation, mentorship).
The organization has been gathering data, building community awareness and seeking funds for the facility. Current planning activities of the IHYS Board include researching Youth Services models in other communities.
