Our Mission
We are a non-profit community service organization committed to strengthening youth and families through community involvement.
Random acts of kindness

Casework Services
Services are provided by a master's level social work professional at the Youth Assistance office located in South Lyon High School. The caseworker works with children and families to find effective solutions for the family. Through early intervention, problems that are more serious can be prevented, and family harmony can be restored.

Casework services are voluntary and confidential. Caseworkers also provide information and refer families to other helping agencies.

Schools, parents, Police, and agencies make referrals to Youth Assistance. Reasons for referrals include grief and loss, emotional or behavioral difficulties at home, at school or in the community.  Youth Assistance also works closely with the schools in matters of educational neglect and school truancy.

To make a referral please complete this referral form and email it to brantd@oakgov.com
