Hello, I'm Mike Heinisch,
On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff of Kent Youth & Family Services, WELCOME to our multi-faceted web site featuring helpful news, links, and inspiring information about our many exciting initiatives.
Here at KYFS, at the heart of our pursuit, we celebrate diversity. Each and every day, we provide professional counseling, education and support services to children, youth and their families by developing innovative programs in culturally sensitive ways. You will see just how vital our work –
and your involvement – is to our growing community.
For over 41 years, our mission and passion has been "Working Toward a Better Future." And we've only just begun. Kent, Covington and South King County together are an ever-changing blend of multiple cultures and ethnicities from around the world. The area is also home to families who’ve lived here their entire lives and now have children of their own. Our doors are open and KYFS is here to support all of our neighbors who need us.
KYFS.org is your connection to our everyday efforts where you will learn more about our valuable programs providing important life lessons, positivity, and professional support. You will also see our expanding list of local resource partnerships that provide additional family assistance.
You are visiting because you want to make a meaningful difference. The power is in your hands. By volunteering or sponsoring KYFS, you can make a direct impact on somebody’s life whose future relies on our services. It could very well be the most important investment you will ever make.
We encourage you to forward our web site link to your friends and coworkers so that they can see first-hand what KYFS does for our community. Visit as often as possible so you can be a part of something that is truly invigorating and see the difference that KYFS can make!
Thank you for visiting with an open heart and mind. All of us look forward to your involvement as an endorsement of our shared commitment to improving the lives of children, youth and families here in Kent, Covington and South King County. Together we can unite "Working Toward a Better Future."
See you again,
“Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve.
You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
