Youth In Need
Cook (30 hrs/wk)
Because every child deserves a future...
Youth In Need has been serving the greater St. Louis area since
1974 when volunteers reached out to the agency's first client. A
teenage runaway, who left her home after another beating, was
picked up on the streets and taken to the local jail with adult
criminals. Troubled by the community's response to runaway and
homeless teens, volunteers changed the way these teens were treated
by opening Youth In Need's Emergency Shelter.
Today, more than 400 full- and part-time staff serve more than
8,000 of the area's most vulnerable children, teens, and families
at nearly 100 locations in six counties in eastern Missouri.
Mission: To build on the strengths of children, youth and families
so they find safety, hope and success in life.
Vision: Equitable opportunities so children, youth and families in
our region can thrive.
