Together We Can!

In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope – that together we can do extraordinary things. Over the past few weeks and months, the entire world has been coming together to stand up, help out, give back, and heal. Whether that’s through donations to community organizations, celebrating doctors and nurses at shift changes, or reaching out to a neighbor to help with groceries, generosity has been helping the entire world get through this global pandemic. Together.


Payne County Youth Services is participating in GivingTuesday, the global day of unity and giving. We can’t do this without you! The issues we see facing families all across the nation and world from the pandemic are also affecting our neighbors and our clients right here at home. Not only do we need your support, we need your help to spread the word. Please tell your friends and family why you believe in our work and encourage them to support us too! Join the movement today!


Thank you for being a part of the Payne County Youth Services team. 


Together we can continue to provide free quality services for the positive development and recovery of children, youth, and families.
