About Us

Founded in 1973, Nexus Youth and Families is a nonprofit agency committed to serving the South King County region of Washington. We offer free and low-cost behavioral healthcare, emergency shelter, ongoing case management, and more to youth ages birth to twenty four and their families. By partnering with local businesses, school districts, sponsors, and friends we seek to create a community in which every family receives the support they need to thrive. 

It is our belief that every person, regardless of race, gender, ability, or creed, deserves the opportunity to succeed on their own terms. That's why at Nexus Youth and Families we prioritize meeting every client where they are with the care that they need. Our staff work across three campuses, five school districts, and over ten cities to ensure that wherever you are, we're there too.

Whether you're seeking support for yourself or someone you love, we urge you to reach out today and let us work with you towards your vision of a brighter future.

We believe every young person is one helping hand away from achieving success.
