Turning Points for Children

YVLifeSet helps Jamyra achieve her goals

Jamyra was on her way to becoming just another negative statistic — a former foster child who failed to become an independent adult. But, just when the young woman needed help most, Turning Points for Children partnered with Youth Villages to bring YVLifeSet to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

System Impact

Partnership with DCS leads to changes in Tennessee’s child welfare services.

By partnering with public agencies and private providers, Youth Villages creates effective, research-based interventions for youth and families. We seek to improve the lives of others by training on specific service models, scaling best practices, pursuing innovation, informing policy and giving a voice to those we serve.
