Mission
Youth Services for Oklahoma County, Inc. is a nonprofit community organization that advocates, educates, intervenes, and counsels youth and families to make a positive difference in their lives.
Background
Youth Services for Oklahoma County, Inc. was founded in 1972 to address the needs of at-risk youth in our community. With the goal of strengthening families and keeping troubled youth out of detention facilities, Youth Services provided crisis intervention and counseling. 
 
Today, our Outpatient Behaviorial Health Services offers several counseling programs to help at-risk children and families.  The Community At Risk Services (CARS) Program, first introduced in 1998, serves delinquent and pre-delinquent youth involved with the juvenile court. The Juvenile Re-entry of Oklahoma County (JROC) Program, begun in 2008, helps teens leaving incarceration make a successful re-integration into society.

The Family Junction Emergency Youth Shelter opened in 1975 and a new building was completed in 2003 through a capital campaign funded by private donations.  The Junction has provided safe, temporary housing and guidance from caring adults to thousands of children since opening its doors.

The Skills Education/First Time Offender Program has served as a court-ordered consequence for first-time youthful offenders and voluntary participants since 1978.  This four-week course, offered in English and Spanish, is attended by children and at least one of their parents.  They learn how to positively relate, communicate, problem solve, and make win-win decisions.
 
The Community Intervention Center opened in 1997 to serve as a 24-hour holding facility for juveniles arrested by local law enforcement.  CIC's goals are to immediately contact parents, create an environment of consequences for offenders, and free officers to immediately return to active duty.
 
The Supporting Kids in Independent Living (SKIL) Program was developed in 1998 as an initiative of the Junior League of Oklahoma City to help reduce the high school drop-out rate in Oklahoma.   SKIL provides material goods, financial assistance, and guidance to Oklahoma City and Putnam City high school students living on their own while trying to reach graduation.
Impact
YSOC has been Changing Young Lives more than 40 years.  Over 2,000 youth plus their family members receive life-changing services each year through programs in our internationally accredited, state-licensed agency.  In Fiscal Year 2015 (July 1, 2014-June 30, 2015):
 
The Community Intervention Center processed 1,388 juveniles arrested in Oklahoma County, providing the community 11,380 hours of service. 

The Family Junction Youth Shelter safely housed 87 children between the ages of 11 and 17 who were in crisis and waiting for a permanent placement through 4,474 days of care.
The First Time Offender/Skills Education Program provided life skills classes to more than 250 youth and their parents in 3,698 hours of service.
Outpatient Behavioral Health Services counseled over 266 youth plus their families through 11,423 hours of service, including 58 re-integrating post-incarceration.
 
The Supporting Kids in Independent Living (SKIL) Program graduated 20 seniors and served 36 other students who might have dropped out of high school without help from SKIL through 1,993 contacts. 
 
YSOC's Teen Service Board offers Oklahoma County high school students the opportunity to earn community service hours in a safe, state-licensed non-profit environment. TSB Members raise funds for fellow teens' Christmas gifts, help stock and organize the SKIL Pantry, and work on other projects to benefit their peers. In its 10th year, TSB has raised a total of more than $94,000 as "teens helping teens".
 
Volunteers including the Board of Trustees, Teen Service Board, and CIC, Family Junction, and SKIL Advisory Boards provided over 3,862 hours of service to the agency. Additionally, numerous corporate employees, church members, and individuals volunteer for projects such as the annual gala Reach for the Stars!, United Way's Day of Caring, and the SKIL Prom Party
 
There are so many ways community partners help us Change Young Lives!  We welcome the opportunity to discuss new ones every day.
Needs
Unrestricted financial contributions to help support day-to-day operations; building maintenance, improvements, and repairs; additional program support; and equipment upgrades are always needed.
 
Donations of food, clothing, toiletries, cleaning supplies, diapers, and baby and toddler food fill the needs of young people in our programs.
 
Christmas, prom, and graduation celebrations require donations to provide our SKIL teens the special life moments they would not receive without our help. Financial contributions for these recognition events are greatly appreciated.
 
Children in the Family Junction Youth Shelter appreciate donations of age-appropriate board games, arts-and-crafts kits, movies and video games, holiday parties, and tickets to sporting events, movies, and local entertainment venues. Our contracts provide for  basic necessities but the extra field trips, recreation, and fun come through our generous community supporters.
 
Items which would build our capacity to provide optimum services include:
 
Emergency generator for 24/7 shelter - $35,000
Emergency generator w/electrical work to install at 24/7 CIC - $45,000 
Additional security cameras and software - $10,000

Description

The Community Intervention Center (CIC) opened in 1997 and is a 24-hour holding facility and discharge point for juveniles arrested in Oklahoma County for misdemeanors, some felonies, and status offenses such as truancy and curfew violations. CIC is a collaboration with the City of Oklahoma City, the Oklahoma City Police Department, and the Oklahoma Office of Juvenile Affairs.  The CIC facilitates the return of law enforcement officers to the field ordinarily in under 5 minutes, provides court date information to parents and offenders, and represents the serious consequences of breaking the law to children taken into custody and their families. The Community Intervention Center processed 1,388 juveniles arrested in Oklahoma County in FY 2015 (July 1, 2014-June 30, 2015).

Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program.
Law enforcement officers return to active duty usually within 5 minutes of delivering a juvenile to the CIC.  In the past, it was police's job to find parents or responsible adults to take custody of offenders, keeping officers from being available to deal with more serious situations.
 
Juveniles are in a safe environment while waiting to be picked up by a parent or responsible adult.  Often, this keeps them from being further involved in a dangerous situation.
 
Parents are instructed in court dates and procedures for dealing with the consequences of their child's crime.  Additionally, their attention is focused on the misdeeds of their child, hopefully in time to prevent further and more serious situations.
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state.
The long-term goal of CIC is to prevent youth from re-offending by providing serious consequences for juvenile crime and truancy.  This builds both youth and parents into stronger law-abiding citizens.
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact.
Records are kept and reports issued reflecting how many times a juvenile has been admitted to the CIC, where in the metro area the youth are arrested/detained, how long the officer was at the CIC, and various statistics of the clients including age, race, and charges filed aginst them.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success.

Although the Community Intervention Center is usually the facility where parents find out their child is engaging in unlawful behavior and they will both be responsible for court-ordered consequences, there are also very positive outcomes at CIC.  “Chelsea” was brought to the CIC for violating curfew. She said she had ridden the bus to Oklahoma to meet a boy she had become friends with on-line. The “boy” turned out to be a 28-year-old man and friendship was not his intention. Through tears, Chelsea said she had run from the bus station and was hanging out at the 24-hour fast food restaurant trying to figure out what to do next. She finally provided her parents’ phone number and they eagerly drove from out-of-state to pick her up. Chelsea thanked the staff for helping her find her way safely home.

Description

The Family Junction Youth Shelter opened in 1974 to provide a safe haven for children in crisis. Originally a two-story building near North 15th Street and Broadway, the current shelter was built in 2003 with individual, corporate, and foundation contributions. The Family Junction is an 18-bed facility for children 12 to 17 years old usually in the custody of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. Our caring staff provides a stable, nurturing atmosphere while residents are between permanent placements. At the shelter, youth attend school, participate in counseling, enjoy recreational activities, receive life skills training, and perform chores such as cleaning their rooms, helping prepare meals, setting the table, and taking out the trash. The Junction has provided safe, temporary housing and guidance from caring adults to thousands of children since opening its doors, including 87 children through 4,474 days of care in FY 2015 (July 1, 2014-June 30, 2015).

Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program.
By providing safe housing, life skills training, educational support, and counseling, Family Junction gives children a safe haven in which to stabilize during crises in their lives. They are well-fed and -clothed and clean every day, things they may not have experienced in their prior home lives.
 
As simple as it seems, most of these children have never had a routine family life or anyone to listen to them as an individual. Many times for the first time, residents sit down to eat a meal in a family setting and learn table manners; they have someone help them with their homework who is concerned about their grades; and they get plenty of sleep and arrive at school on time. These children have people who talk to them and truly care about their daily needs, their education, their choices, and their future.
 
Family Junction's staff offer shelter residents opportunities to talk through their challenges, fears, and dreams in an environment that promotes education, self-esteem, and hope. Each day, our shelter provides a safe, healthy, caring environment to up to 18 children in crisis.
 
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state.
The Junction has provided safe, temporary housing and guidance from caring adults to thousands of children since opening its doors. Providing a place to work through their problems while at this important "Junction" in their lives helps them build a foundation for a more stable life, whatever their next, hopefully permanent, placement may be and into adulthood.
 
Shelter staff establish, or maintain, healthy sleeping, eating, and studying habits for these youth. Appropriate behavior, anger management, alcohol/drug abuse prevention, and conflict resolution are examples of life skills taught to children in shelter care.
 
For many residents, their school grades improve because they have enough sleep, food, and homework time they may not have had in the past. Positive experiences with their school performance and resulting enhanced attitude toward education, coupled with improved grades, can have a lasting impact on their education and eventual life and employment opportunities.  
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact.
The Family Junction Youth Shelter meets stringent requirements of the Oklahoma Department of Health and Human Services. The agency and its programs are reviewed annually in the Oklahoma Association of Youth Services, Inc. Statewide Peer Review. 
 
Data is gathered in monthly and quarterly progress reports and annual plans and evaluations are compiled and reviewed by staff and the Board of Trustees. 
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success.
Thousands of children have found a safe home at The Family Junction since it was first opened in 1975.  Many of them are in their early teens and go into  foster homes from our shelter.  Occasionally, some are nearly 18 and foster placement is difficult to find for them.  Here is one of their stories.
 
Jay had been in several foster homes since his drug-addicted mother abandoned him when he was in elementary school.  Some placements lasted a few months; others longer.  Jay came to The Family Junction with a GED as he waited to turn 18 and fulfill his dream of joining the military.  Shelter staff helped him research the best options for his talents and career goals, while teaching him how to apply for, and keep, jobs until he could enlist.  As his deployment neared, Jay's excitement spread to the entire agency staff as his bright smile and hopeful heart remind us that, every day, we are Changing Young Lives!

Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program.
Clients and their families achieve short-term success by benefiting from improved communication and coping skills, and setting goals and reaching them.  Additionally, drug and alcohol abuse counseling services provide the means to identify abuse and receive appropriate treatment referrals and help dealing with addiction.  This immediately effects the individuals and families receiving services, as well as provides for long-term physical and emotional health benefits.

Our motto is "Changing Young Lives!" but this program's reach goes far beyond just the teens we counsel. Their parents, siblings, and the children they have now or in the future are forever changed for the better by the calm, clarity, and help provided during whatever crisis brings them to our programs. We may witness the improvements in family relations and employment situations, cessation of drug or alcohol abuse, or triumph over problems that face our clients and their families. Sometimes, the change comes at home or away from our eyes. But it is certain that we have helped our clients make it through a crisis and, hopefully, to a better future.

Many of our clients have short-term problems that simply require a few individual and family counseling sessions to solve.  Some teens have more complex situations they need help with.
 

“Tiffani” made some big mistakes that resulted in a year of incarceration when she was 17. But she spent her time positively, earning her high school diploma and researching higher education options. While receiving re-integration and life skills training in our Juvenile Re-entry of Oklahoma County (JROC) Program, she was accepted to a local community college to begin work on a nursing degree. Tiffani is now focused on her future and making positive choices to assure her success.

Description The First Time Offender Program began state-wide in 1978. YSOC has been a leader in its curriculum development since inception. This program is a four-week course, offered in English and Spanish, as a court-ordered consequence for first-time youthful offenders. It is also attended by voluntary participants. At least one parent or guardian is required to attend with each client. Together, they learn communication, relationship, and anger management skills, and how to make choices with positive consequences. YSOC is the only agency in Oklahoma offering this curriculum in Spanish. The First Time Offender Program provided life skills classes to more than 250 youth and their parents through 3.698 hours of service in FY 2015 (July 1, 2014-June 30, 2015). SEP clients have a 95% rate of not re-offending. Additionally, SEP instructors provide classes on parenting skills as part of the "Within My Reach" program to TANF recipients with children.

Short-term success is measured in number of families and children completing classes.  Clients report improvements in day-to-day communications, coping skills, and interpersonal relationships.  Often the time spent traveling to class and in class together is the most time children and parents have spent together in months, if not years.

Often parents and children are not pleased that they have been ordered by a judge to attend classes as part of the consequence of the child's offense.  Usually by the end of the sessions, they realize the benefit to their family with improved communications and stronger relationships.  Here is one parent's story:  
 
“Sarah” leaned over to one of the Youth Services staff members during a tour of the agency and said, “I’ve been here before. Not as a guest of a community group like this, but as a parent in your First Time Offender Program. My son was arrested for something stupid he got into with his friends and we were ordered by the Court to take your classes. We weren’t too excited at first but I knew he needed to think about his actions. You know how kids hear something differently when it’s said by someone other than their parent? Well, he heard what was said in class by the instructor, the other kids and parents, and – most importantly – by me. My son realized I wasn’t just nagging him or smothering him; I was trying to help him make smart choices. I’m glad we went through your program because we’ve been communicating much better since finishing your classes and now he’s doing great in college.”
Description

The Supporting Kids in Independent Living (SKIL) Program, begun in 1998 to help reduce the high school drop-out rate in Oklahoma, offers financial and emotional support to high school students in the Oklahoma City and Putnam City School Districts who, for reasons beyond their control, live on their own with no parent or guardian while working toward their high school diploma. By providing connections to basic necessities and emergency needs, as well as guidance and life skills education, SKIL ensures students get the resources they need to graduate. SKIL also provides some food, diapers, clothing, and equipment to infants and toddlers of clients.

 
SKIL graduated 20 seniors and served 56 total students who might have dropped out of high school without the help they received from SKIL in FY 2015 (July 1, 2014-June 30, 2015). There are no other programs in the Oklahoma City area that provide the services SKIL does under its one umbrella to this at-risk population.

Clients receive material goods and financial assistance; guidance including help finding a safe place to live and obtaining home furnishings, medical care, employment, and making post-graduation plans; and life skills education such as job readiness, money management, healthy living habits, and nutrition planning. Additionally, teens with infants or toddlers received food, diapers, equipment, and clothing for their children, as well as parenting education.

 
It is anticipated 100% of SKIL clients make positive progress toward graduation. 
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state.
Over 1,400 Oklahoma County high school students have received direct services from SKIL since its inception in 1998.  Historically, 90 to 95% of seniors in the SKIL Program reach graduation and most go on to higher education or vocational training or enter the military.  The long-term impact for SKIL clients is earning a high school diploma, resulting in greater educational and employment opportunities for a more prosperous future for them as individuals, as citizens, and as parents. This benefits the community as a whole, now and in the future. 
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact. Data is gathered in monthly and quarterly progress reports and annual evaluations and plans are compiled and reviewed by staff and the Board of Trustees. Overall, success is measured by the numbers of clients we serve and the quantity and types of services provided. For SKIL, the number of students progressing towards graduation or actually earning their diploma is the numerical measurement of success. The students’ ability to continue to grow in their education, employment, and personal independence is immeasurable success.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success.
SKIL has so many success stories of students facing unimaginable obstacles and continuing to work toward graduation while living on their own.  Some students need a large variety of services and basic necessities, others do not.  But all of our clients receive emotional support, as well as the priceless knowledge that someone cares about them and wants to help them succeed.  In some cases, there is no way to measure the difference we make in a young person's life.  One example is "Donnie", a SKIL graduate in 2011.
“Donnie” attended the Annual SKIL Graduation Celebration and the graduation gifts he received were a surprise to him.  He called our SKIL case manager to say how much he appreciated the event and recognition. Our case manager told Donnie he deserved the gifts and recognition for his hard work and that he was proud of him. Later that day, Donnie sent a text message saying that was the first time in his life anyone had told him they were proud of him.

A new over-reaching programming component, Youth Transitioning to Adulthood, is in the start-up phase as we seek to provide additional services to clients who have finished participation in other programs.
 
When they graduate from high school and the Supporting Kids in Independent Living (SKIL) Program, age out of our Family Junction Youth Shelter, finish their counseling sessions through Outpatient Behavioral Health Services, complete classes for First Time Offender/ Skills Education or Juvenile Re-entry of Oklahoma County (JROC), or come through our Community Intervention Center (CIC), most clients need continued guidance and assistance to continue on the path to reach adulthood. Many of them have no one in the important parenting role to help them make the successful transition to supporting themselves.
 
Youth Transitioning to Adulthood Programming will be a vital support network to clients as they navigate the adult world of employment, continued education, banking, and making healthy life choices on the way to self-sufficiency.

During FY 2015, Youth Transitioning to Adulthood Programming will be developed to serve clients in all existing YSOC programs more fully and for an extended amount of time; expand partnerships with colleges, universities, vocational schools, and other educational outlets; create collaborations with food industry professionals and entities to utilize the new Teaching Kitchen; build and enlist help from contacts to utilize the newly-equipped "Den" on-site workout facility for client employment training in the health, wellness, and fitness industries; and secure and expand donors, supporters, advocates, and awareness of the agency and its programs through the new programming approach.
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state. The Youth Transitioning to Adulthood Programming aims to help clients make the successful leap to self-sufficiency and living as a productive adult.
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact. Once built, the Youth Transitioning to Adulthood Programming will measure number of contacts made through this expansion; number, gender, age, ethnicity, and race of clients served and what material or financial assistance they received; as we as client and stakeholder satisfaction through periodically distributed surveys.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success.
Once underway, Youth Transitioning to Adulthood Programming will be able to measure success by the number of clients completing higher education, securing and retaining gainful employment, and living independently.
 
So many of our clients are successful within the program parameters they participate in now (such as high school Valedictorians and college scholarship winners in SKIL), we believe we will have numerous success stories to share after they receive additional guidance and assistance through Youth Transitioning to Adulthood Programming.
