What Monroe County says about Youth First

“Having a Youth First Social Worker on our counseling staff at Edgewood Junior High School has greatly improved our system of support for students. A Youth First Social Worker brings professional expertise and a heartfelt manner that is a difference maker. Their genuine commitment to the care and well-being of our students is apparent in their daily work.  We are very thankful to have a Youth First Social Worker as a part of our team!”

“We are grateful for the work you do to take care of the needs of our young people in this community and are pleased to have the opportunity to support this important work.  We know that it is as pressing now as ever with all the challenges presented by the COVID-19 crisis.”
