What Warrick County says about Youth First

“Without Youth First and [Castle Youth First Social Worker] Mrs. Baker, I would have gone down a very bad path…”

“I’m no longer depressed to the point of suicide–you changed that. I know that I’m not alone now, thanks to you. You saved my life.”

“I want to thank you for all the times that you were there for me. Your support helped me on some of my darkest days. Your advice has helped me get out of tight situations, and I really appreciated your support. I want to thank you for the times you have listened to me and have given me words of encouragement.”

“We could not run this school effectively without Jessie (Youth First Social Worker) and Youth First. It has changed both me and my school.”
