Troy Youth Assistance is a PREVENTION program. It is a volunteer-driven, 501(C)3 non-profit organization, one of 26 Youth Assistance programs in Oakland County. Each local Youth Assistance office is tri-sponsored by the Oakland County Circuit Court-Family Division, the local school district, and the city therein. The Oakland County Board of Commissioners provides major funding for a professional counselor in each unit.

Troy Youth Assistance provides confidential, short-term, family-centered counseling and referral services for youth, 16 years of age or younger, and their families who live in Troy or attend Troy schools. Referrals are accepted from school personnel, police, parents and other community sources. A professional counselor assesses the needs of each child and may provide counseling services, link families with available resources or make appropriate referrals.

Volunteers work with the professional counselor to plan and sponsor local parenting and prevention programs for youth and their families. These programs are designed to promote positive behaviors and strengthen family relationships in our community.

Mission: Troy Youth Assistance is committed to strengthening youth and families by preventing and reducing juvenile delinquency, child neglect, and child abuse through community involvement.
