Youth Services Center
Our Youth Services Center
At the cornerstone of youthSpark’s work, is our Youth Services Center, which provides vulnerable girls, boys, and LGBTQ youth and families with life changing interventions—whether that’s crisis intervention, court and legal advocacy, trauma-informed case management, evidence-based group therapy, empowerment activities, or referrals to trusted community-based support for children and families. We operate our Center through an early intervention and sanctuary model that promotes safety and recovery from adversity through the active creation of a trauma-responsive community that has been demonstrated to increase youth’s wellbeing and health, reduce vulnerabilities, and help them build healthy relationships with positive adult role models. For every young person who walks through our doors and into our welcoming Center, there is an opportunity for hope—whether that’s finding a place to heal, to get support, and, ultimately, to become happy and thriving young adult. youthSpark’s vision is to create strong social support systems to prevent abuse before it happens. That’s why we joyously serve Atlanta’s most vulnerable children.
