At Stanford Sierra Youth & Families (SSYF), we have been committed to permanency and the empowerment of youth and families since 1900.
We believe each and every child deserves the love, safety, and unconditional commitment of a family and the opportunity to develop as a healthy and happy young adult.
Through a continuum of care, we empower youth and families to overcome challenges together, as well as connect youth in foster care to the permanent loving families they need and deserve. We support the entire family with professional treatment and compassionate care so every youth has the opportunity to thrive at home, in school, and in the community.
Within our programs, SSYF serves over 2,200 youth annually. Comprehensive services and support are extended to their siblings and caregivers, creating a broader reach of a combined 4,500 youth and families served throughout 17 Northern California counties.
