Our Mission and Values


Fred Finch Youth Center seeks to provide innovative, effective services supporting children, youth, young adults, and families to heal from trauma and lead healthier, productive lives.

For a legacy to stand the test of time, it is essential to define one’s values.  At FFYC, our work is driven by these core values:

Respect  To create trust

Family – To sustain throughout life

Compassion – To connect one life to another

Persistence – To stay the course, no matter what

Safety – To build a secure foundation

Hope – To invent a brighter future

At Fred Finch Youth Center, these values are not just what we say, but what we do. You can see it in every program. Our staff is compassionate and committed, resourceful with your donations, innovative in our solutions. We work with young people to overcome multiple and simultaneous challenges, including homelessness, economic disadvantage, mental health and cognitive disabilities, and histories of significant trauma and loss.
