Studies show the average cost of locking up one youth is $588 per day. Forty states report spending at least $100,000 a year per youth on placement.

Read that line again.

That is millions of dollars each year allocated to placing youth in facilities, and that is why Youth Advocate Programs (YAP), Inc., needs YOUR help today. Be the solution. As our supporter, you know that YAP offers safe, community-based programs at ONE-FOURTH OR LESS the cost of most out-of-home placements.

Help us raise $100,000 by Dec. 31 to help kids like Emily. We cannot accomplish this – and YAP’s life-changing work for youth and families nationwide – without YOU.
