New Directions. Brighter Futures.

CYS, a United Way affiliate, has been a successful and established non-profit in downtown Olympia for more than 40 years, providing an array of services to help a wide range of youth: those in foster care, those who need help finishing their educations or getting a job or finding a safe place to live, and those seeking meaningful ways to connect with society in a positive way. About 4,000 youth – and their families – seek our services annually. We offer 19 different programs that work singly and together to help young people become independent, successful adult members of society.

Want to help? We’re always looking for donations of time, funding or needed gently used items. Call us at 360-943-0780 to learn more.
