Youth Empowerment Siskiyou Programs
Our CASA program recruits, screens and trains community volunteer advocates. Our mission is to monitor foster children’s progress through court proceedings, assess and inform the court of the children’s needs and progress and work toward permanent and safe placement of each child in a timely manner.
This effort provides comfort bags for foster children in transition. Comfort bags contain items specifically chosen to be useful and comforting. These bags give a sense of dignity and hope. It is theirs to keep; to own. No more carrying personal belongings in garbage bags.
Youth Empowerment Siskiyou is creating YES for families to help serve our community as a supervised visitation program. YES for Families' mission is to encourage, strengthen, and empower children and parents while providing a safe, neutral, accessible place for children to meet with their non-custodial parents or family members that is free of conflict or abuse.
