Our mission is to promote the healthy development of youth and families. Capital City Youth Services offers counseling and outreach services to youth and their families, and emergency shelter services to youth in crisis. We serve youth and families throughout the Big Bend area of North Florida, including Leon, Gadsden, Wakulla, Franklin, Liberty, Jefferson, Madison and Taylor Counties. All services are free and confidential. All of our programs focus on reaching out and helping youth and families who have found themselves in situations beyond their control. Take a look around our site - if you have ANY questions, would like to request services or want to help, please contact us.
