Youth Averted from Delinquency (YAD)

Services provided by YAD include family and individual counseling with a licensed therapist, parenting education classes, summer activities, and occasional home repairs donated by local churches.
RGV Protects addresses violence against children in the lower Rio Grande Valley (RGV) area of Texas, where some children are victims of maltreatment, gang or gun-related violence, sexual assault, intimate partner violence and sex trafficking. Due to fear of self-reporting from survivors and limited services, it has been difficult to identify help for those who need it most. RGV Protects is a vital step in closing this gap in services.
