Your Gift Matters
The Northwest Corner is a place of incredible natural beauty. But the beautiful surroundings often mask the troubling lives of children, teens and families living in our community. Some suffer the daily effects of income inequality, trauma, addiction and emotional strife. Others face social awkwardness, insecurities and peer pressures that can bring on anxiety, school phobia and depression. HYSB is one of the only mental health providers for youth in Region 1, and area young people and families increasingly turn to us to meet their needs for emotional support.
Generous individuals and businesses provide more than half of HYSB’s $350,000 budget each year. We also receive funding from town and state governments, foundation grants and contracts for services. Without your generous support our experienced counselors would not be there to help turn young lives around and give our youth the chance to flourish.
Where Your Money Goes
HYSB does something extraordinary. We provide professional mental health services for FREE. At market rates of between $75-$150 or more an hour, the free counseling services provided by HYSB in one year would have cost the families we serve roughly $556,000.

We believe in the power of healthy communities. Donate to HYSB and 100% of your gift will go right back to the community in the form of free counseling, programs and enrichment that support that support the emotional health of youth and families in the Northwest Corner. We could not be more grateful for your ongoing and generous contributions.
