Vision: Breaking the cycle of fatherlessness
Purpose: Our mission is to empower children and their families to become healthy, productive members of our community and to create an awareness for the needs of at-risk youth.
Gospel-Driven: We continually seek to show and share the Gospel to point others to Christ. The Gospel saves us, defines us, restores us, and propels us in everything we do.
Commitment: We advocate passionately for the well-being and transformation of the youth and families we serve by being engaged, consistent, and persistent through trials and triumphs.
Relationships: We empower those we serve to embrace their God-given worth and potential by building intentional relationships centered on honesty, respect, humility, and compassion.
Professionalism: We pursue excellence in all that we do while maintaining an atmosphere that inspires confidence in our services through integrity, confidentiality, accountability, and transparency. We strive to always uphold research-based best practices.
Community: We build strategic and creative partnerships in our community through local agencies, businesses, and churches that will holistically enhance the lives of the families we serve to achieve our mission. We believe collaboration is essential for the long-term success of those we serve and for the growth of the organization.

Youth Horizons operates four group homes and creates a healthy Christian home environment for boys with severe individual and family challenges.
Staff members frequently teach, train and accept public speaking engagements. Youth Horizons also partners with like-minded organizations.
