Directions for Youth & Families

Since 1899 Directions for Youth & Families has provided counseling and prevention services to the central Ohio community. DFYF offers 14 programs that specialize in issues such as sexual abuse/violence, mental health issues, physical abuse/neglect and grief/loss. We operate two youth centers in disadvantaged neighborhoods offering a safe, positive and enriching environment during after-school and summer hours when youth are most at-risk for self-defeating and delinquent behaviors. Our 70+ licensed counselors are trained by experts in the trauma-based ARC (Attachment, Self-Regulation and Competency) treatment model.
