Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our Vision is: Empowering youth and their families to live free of substance use challenges.

For the past 50 years, Bacon Street Youth and Family Services has provided essential prevention and treatment services to thousands of families and their children who have experienced firsthand the trauma involved with youth substance abuse and addiction. Our redesigned prevention programs are now in their second year; during the past fiscal year, we served close to 2,000 youth and community members.

• Our Neighborhood Outreach Program (NOP) provides after-school and summer programming for youth and families in low-income housing communities in collaboration with Community Housing Partners;

• Our school-based programming teams with SHIP (School Health Initiative Project) and other school programs to provide mindfulness, mental health, and wellness based activities for participating youth.

• A variety of support and psychosocial groups are open to the public at no cost to meet the varying needs of our clients and families.

• Our outpatient substance use treatment program provides family-focused, evidence-based services for youth who are experiencing problems with alcohol or other drugs, suffering from co-occurring disorders or are at high risk for such problems. In 2017 we served 441 youth and their families through our clinical program.

Through our services, we are able to dramatically reduce community costs, such as law enforcement, long-term incarceration, court-related expenses, and emergency room services.

We have traditionally served the communities of Williamsburg, James City County, York County, and Poquoson, and are broadening our scope to include Hampton, Newport News, Mathews and Gloucester Counties. We serve adolescents, young adults up to the age of 26, and their family members through prevention and treatment programs. In our traditional service area, there are 46 schools, with over 25,000 children.

Over the past almost 50 years thousands of youth and their families have gone through the treatment programs at Bacon Street Youth and Family Services, and are living healthy, happy, productive lives. As we continue to grow, we are working to address the current opioid epidemic and the devastating toll that this is playing on youth and young adults and their families.
