Our Promise to Youth


The Center for Youth is the best organization to turn to for young people seeking to deal with, explore, or understand issues of importance to them - from their perspective, and on their terms. Started by kids, for kids, all Center services - from counseling, to shelter, to education, to referrals - are rooted in, and delivered with the knowledge that youth want to, and can, take responsibility for their life choices.

Youth in crisis can access help at our 24-hour line: (585) 271-7670, Toll-free crisis hotline: 
1-888-617-KIDS or go to a designated Safe Place site.
