Children, Youth and Family Services; Every child deserves a bright future

CYFS is all about getting kids ready - ready to learn, ready for relationships, and ultimately ready for life!

For over 90 years we have helped create a brighter future for the children of central Virginia. We are a local nonprofit organization that addresses critical issues such as: child abuse and neglect, parenting support and education, child care quality, teen and family conflict, and early learning opportunities for children.

In 2013, CYFS reached over 6600 community members with programs that work to ensure that…

  • Kids are ready to start school

  • Child care providers are ready to improve the quality of their care
  • Families are ready to create stable and nurturing environments
  • Kids are ready to move beyond trauma

We look forward to increasing our impacts and engaging the community in these efforts as we work toward the vision: Every child is Learning Ready, Relationship Ready, and Life Ready with a future rich with possibilities.
