[ Who We Help ]
Capital City Youth Services (CCYS) offers counseling and outreach services to youth and their families, and emergency shelter services to youth in crisis. We serve youth and families throughout the Big Bend area of North Florida, including Leon, Gadsden, Wakulla, Franklin, Liberty, Jefferson, Madison and Taylor Counties. All CCYS services are free and confidential and our programs focus on reaching out and helping youth and families who have found themselves in situations beyond their control.
[ Transitional Living Center ]
CCYS has launched a Capital Campaign to raise the financial support necessary to build a Transitional Living Center for older youth in need (ages 15-18 years old). This will be the first of its kind in the area, providing shelter, safety and hope for desperate youth in our community. The proposed center will close a critical gap in services for youth in this area, and help for youth who have no place to "transition" into adulthood - no one to encourage them and no guidance to show them how to be a successful, responsible citizen.
[ Building a Legacy ]
Legacy gifts are essential to ensuring the success of the Transitional Living Center. Through a legacy gift, one individual or business can make a tremendous impact on our community, and lives of transitioning youth for generations to come. Gifts can be a one-time donation or a pledge over a period of time - whatever is most convenient to you. By supporting this project, you will leave a legacy that will allow these young people to experience the priceless gift of hope, safety and support.
