Teton Youth & Family Services

The mission of Teton Youth & Family Services (TYFS) is to help children and families find their way to fulfilling and constructive lives. TYFS is an independent private non-profit organization, that has been serving children and families in Teton County and beyond since 1977, when Van Vleck House first opened its doors as a drop-in center for teens. TYFS is now the umbrella organization for three entities that are crucial to child welfare in our community and state: Van Vleck House, which includes a Group Home and Crisis Center and Court Diversion Services; Red Top Meadows, which provides residential treatment and wilderness programs for adolescent males; and the Hirschfield Center for Children which provides programs for families and children as well as forensic interviews for children subject to neglect and/or abuse.
