YAP began providing services in New Jersey in 1978. The Division of Youth and Families Services (DYFS) in Camden County initiated the first contract with YAP to reduce the number of young people in residential placements and to expand the continuum of community-based care available for high-risk children and their families in their county.

In the late 1980’s, YAP was an instrumental partner in changing the state child welfare system by bringing child family teams, strength-based assessments and wraparound service planning to NJ, and successfully brining 1,400 children back home. Over the past 30 years, YAP has begun successful community-based programs throughout every region of the State.

Today YAP is one of the key agencies in New Jersey working with young people and families with the most complex needs in the communities. YAP primarily contracts with the divisions of the New Jersey Department of Children and Families (DCF) and some additional services are provided through individual counties, serving over 600 youth per week. Typical YAP services focus on intensive advocacy, case management, mentoring, family support, life skills training, anger management/coping skills training, and supported work programs with youth and teen fathers. YAP can tailor these services for those at risk of out of home placement, detention, incarceration, truancy, gang involvement, and criminal activity. As an approved NJ Behavioral Health provider under the State Medicaid program, YAP also serves an additional 100 youth and their families at any given time and employs bachelor, master and licensed level therapeutic staff. More recently, YAP has begun introducing its model for serving those on the Autism Spectrum through various training programs.
