YAP and Santa Fe Youth Services: Joining Together to Increase our Collective Impact
YAP is proud to officially announce our merger with Santa Fe Youth Services! Last night, the merger was formally announced through a reception at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. Since 1997, Santa Fe Youth Services has a history of providing adolescent drug treatment as well as a number of prevention and early intervention evidence-based programs to Tarrant County youth and their families. Partnering with schools, community agencies and Tarrant County Juvenile Services, Santa Fe Youth Services currently provides programs for more than 4,000 youth and families a year.
YAP has been a leading youth service agency in Tarrant County since 1991, providing community-based support to moderate and high risk children and youth involved with the Texas Youth Commission, Fort Worth Independent School System and receiving YES Waiver services for emotional and behavioral health needs.
Our partnership broadens and deepens our collective impact in building resilient, socially and emotionally healthy children, youth and families across a continuum of needs in Tarrant County, Texas and beyond. Through our combined experience, we have the ability to work effectively with children, youth and families with minimal risk to very high and complex risk across a myriad of needs. In particular, we are excited about the expertise that Santa Fe Youth Services brings to YAP's ongoing effort to strengthen our services and supports for individuals and families struggling with substance use.
