Eckerd Youth Alternatives is a private, not-for-profit organization with an enormous vision – to ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed. Since 1968 that vision has driven us to develop innovative alternatives to help youth lead successful, productive lives.
Our vision translates into action through a continuum of eight program types in nine states. We are committed to keeping at-risk kids out of trouble. Getting troubled kids back on track. Creating therapeutic residential settings where kids can heal and learn. Supporting youth in their communities, so they stay headed in the right direction. And preparing foster youth for independent living as adults. For the youth and families we serve, Eckerd programs offer help, hope and encouragement.
Our goal? To improve the future, one child at a time.
