Who We Are
Evergreen Youth & Family Services is a private, non-profit youth and family service provider. In the past 35 years, Evergreen has developed a safety net of services to strengthen youth, preserve families, and help support successful transitions to adulthood. Every year, 2500 children, youth, and young families come to us for emergency food and shelter, mentoring, independent living skills training, counseling, pregnancy prevention, transitional housing and community suicide prevention. Youth and families of all backgrounds and walks of life are welcome. Approximately 60% of the youth we serve each year are Native American or mixed race, and 40% are Caucasian. The agency offers a continuum of services to keep youth safe, help them successfully transition to adulthood, and provide support to parents and caregivers.
Evergreen’s services are primarily provided through two program sites based in Bemidji, MN.
