Valley Youth House began in 1973 as a single youth shelter in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley. VYH was open day and night, ensuring the vulnerable, abused and homeless young people in the community had access to shelter and counseling. Even then, we represented more than just a roof and beds. We were an organization committed to building a solid foundation for every youth who came through our doors. That same dedication still drives us today, as we have grown from that first shelter in the Valley to over 250 residential facilities throughout Pennsylvania. While our reach and programming have vastly expanded to include street outreach, skills training, health, prevention, and intervention services, our mission remains the same.
We do whatever it takes to make sure that every young person we meet has a sturdy base upon which to build a healthy future.
For the past 45 years, we have been proud to be there for two generations. We stand ready to be there for the next generations as well. Our doors remain open – we just have more of them now.
Valley Youth House does more than just provide a home for Pennsylvania’s vulnerable, abused, and homeless youth. We partner with thousands of individuals each year to build a solid foundation for young people and their families. With dedicated street outreach, housing, counseling, skills training, health, prevention, and intervention services, we empower resilient young people in establishing promising futures.To learn more about us, visit our https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFFBKhGyxrM
