Our Mission
We are a non-profit community service organization committed to strengthening youth and families by preventing and reducing juvenile delinquency, child neglect and child abuse through community involvement.

Casework Services
Services are provided by a social work professional at the Youth Assistance office located by the Center for Active Adults at South Lyon High School. The caseworker works with children and families to reduce behavior problems and 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, confidential and have a one-time processing fee of $25.00. Caseworkers also provide information and refer families to other helping agencies.

Police, schools, parents 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. The police may divert teens from official court to Youth Assistance for alcohol or other drug involvement, home or school incorrigibility, larceny, retail fraud, or malicious destruction of property. Youth Assistance also works closely with the schools in matters of educational neglect and school truancy.

Enriching Programs
South Lyon Area Youth Assistance offers many programs for children in the area from Homework Help Centers to an overnight camping experience. There is an opportunity for families to participate in Shop with a Hero and Ready for School Shopping through our community partners.

Each program is unique and has specific criteria that need to be met. If you are interested in any program or need more information please call the office at (248) 573-8189 or email us directly at . Our office is located in South Lyon High School at
1000 N. Lafayette South Lyon, MI 48178
