NDY has provided critically needed services to more than 200,000 youth, the majority of whom come from very low-income families residing in underserved geographic areas including North Hollywood, Van Nuys, Panorama City, North Hills, the economic Enterprise Zone of Pacoima, Sun Valley, and contiguous areas. Our approach is holistic: we recognize that our clients’ needs are extremely complex and we have worked to develop an array of services, including both prevention and intervention programs, to meet these diverse needs.
New Directions for Youth, Inc. is dedicated to providing comprehensive programs and services to at-risk youth and their families.
