10 May Support our local youth in need!
I am contacting you today on behalf of Bayfront Youth & Family Services, a 501(c)3 organization, because we need your help to continue providing highly needed services to L.A & adjacent counties.
Bayfront Youth & Family Services has been a quality provider of Behavioral and Mental Health treatment services for children, adolescents, and their caregivers for over 20 years. Our mission is to facilitate a comprehensive support system that promotes safe and nurturing environments for children & their families.
In the past decade, we have been able to help over 3,000 youth and their families through our various programs such as our Clinical and Therapeutic services that provide high quality, evidence-based care & prevention services to children and their families. The Wraparound Program, to facilitate the family’s movement from dependence on county-based systems of care to natural support systems. The Parent Training & Education Program, as well as School-linked Services, Agency Trainings, collaboration with the GAIN Program to prepare the next generation of our workforce, and so much more.
Our clients come from troubled backgrounds with histories of abuse or neglect and have experienced traumas no kid should ever have in their lifetime. Without the support of our programs, many of these children and teens would fall prey to drugs, homelessness, crime, despair, and the manipulation of opportunists seeking to exploit their vulnerability. Last year, we were only able to take on a little more than 300 of these youths and their families, despite the County of Los Angeles receiving about 10,000 referrals for services per month. We are trying to fulfill a need that is severely overlooked: providing quality care to the at-risk youth and their families in the community.
At Bayfront, we believe trauma is only one aspect of the child – all children and adolescents have strengths and talents. We believe you are committed to helping children in our community, and we are asking for your assistance. It is through the support of individuals like you that allows us to offer greater engagement and opportunities to the youth that we serve. Through our mutual efforts, we seek to partner with the community in voicing our resolve that a person’s history and mental health status should not limit their opportunities for having a happy and fulfilled life. We truly believe ‘Support the family, support the child.’
