For over 40+ years, Southwest Youth & Family Services (SWYFS) has worked to remove barriers to our community’s success and sustainability caused by systemic and economic inequities. Through this commitment, SWYFS has become a leading resource for low-income and vulnerable children, youth, and families, supporting more than 2,000 individuals annually with holistic, wrap-around services in education, youth development, behavioral health, and family advocacy.
