Montgomery County Youth Services receives $6,500 grant
Montgomery County Youth Services recently was awarded a $6,500 grant from Woodforest Charitable Foundation to fund counseling services, Street Outreach Services and the maintenance of two youth shelters.
“We are so excited to receive this grant from Woodforest Charitable Foundation,” said John Bracken, executive director of MCYS, in a press release. “The foundation has been a regular supporter of MCYS and helps us fill the funding gaps that our other grants and contracts don’t cover. We are incredibly grateful to the Woodforest Charitable Foundation for their support of MCYS in continuing to provide counseling and services to at-risk youth and families in our community.”
Montgomery County Youth Services works to provide crisis counseling, shelter programs and prevention services to strengthen families and keep young people in school.
Programs include substance abuse education; community outreach programs; Fairway Home, a transitional living program for homeless youth in Montgomery County; BridgeWay, an emergency shelter for abused and neglected youth; and Street Outreach, which provides food, clothing and other services to homeless youth.
MCYS has been in operation since 1979, with offices in Conroe, The Woodlands, Magnolia, Splendora, Willis and Huntsville.
