Charity Youth Family Services Agency (CYFSA) is a nonprofit agency that provides services directly to high-risk youth from urban low-income communities. Each year, thousands of U.S. youth run away from home or are asked to leave their homes and become homeless because of domestic violence, abuse, neglect or poverty. CYFSA runaway and homeless youth counselors provide street outreach and work with emergency shelters, longer-term transitional living and maternity group home programs to serve and protect these young people.
