Shrewsbury Youth and Family Services, Inc. (SYFS) is our community's only private, non-profit counseling and social services agency, providing programs, services and trainings that help to strengthen and support youth and families.
SYFS needs YOU to provide HOPE.
Due to COVID-19, our annual fundraising gala was canceled - which is one third of our annual operating budget. This funding is essential to SYFS remaining open to serve.
Half of all adults and one in five youth will suffer from mental illness in their lifetime. This means someone you know is living with mental illness. SYFS is here to offer hope and ensure people have somewhere to turn when they are struggling in pain.
Hope underpins the recovery process of mental illness. Hope becomes a foundation and the energy that drives us to find a way to get better and heal. It keeps us strong when we encounter challenges. Hope lives at SYFS.
Whether it's $25 or $2,000, your gift is appreciated.
