Collier Youth Services provides at-risk youth a chance to grow toward their potential in an environment that promotes belonging, dignity and hope. The mission is based on a philosophy of deep respect for the inherent worth of each individual and the belief in the capacity for personal change that is consistent with the ministry of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd. Their programs have developed over the years in response to the changing needs of the young people and families they serve. Collier Youth Services addresses the therapeutic and social issues of youngsters through educational, residential, and recreational programs of the highest quality. While their services continue to evolve, one thing remains constant: their commitment to nurturing the potential of each person and honoring their individual worth.
