Founded in 1880, Three Rivers Youth (TRY) has over 138 years of experience providing services to at-risk youth, adults, and families. TRY advances a mission to preserve and unite families, combat homelessness, enhance educational opportunities and build life skills for at-risk youth. TRY achieves this mission through programs and services that touch over 5,500 youth, adults and families annually. TRY programs/services include: Behavioral Health; Drug & Alcohol – Prevention, Intervention, Treatment, Assessments, Outreach, and Recovery Services; Foster Care; Family Preservation (in-home) Services; and Homeless Services.
As a nationally accredited human service agency through the Council on Accreditation, continuous quality improvement drives service delivery across programs and services at Three Rivers Youth. Our commitment to quality services and evidence-based approaches catalyzed our decision to apply to become a Sanctuary Certified Organization; a process we began this year. The Sanctuary Model is an evidence-informed, organizational change model that addresses the impact of client, staff and organizational trauma on overall service quality and outcomes. Sanctuary Certified Organizations have shown significantly better outcomes for clients, in addition to increased overall morale and improved retention rates for staff.
