A SAFE PLACE FOR YOUTH
WHO WE ARE
OUR SERVICE AREA
Evergreen serves the greater Bemidji area, and also offers services to youth and families from 15 other counties and area reservations (services and eligibility vary depending on the program). Don't hesitate to call or email with questions!
Evergreen Youth & Family Services is a private, non-profit youth and family service provider. In the past 40 years, Evergreen has developed a safety net of services to strengthen youth, preserve families, and help support successful transitions to adulthood. Evergreen's services are primarily provided through two program sites based in Bemidji, Minnesota.
Every year, 2500 children, youth, and young families come to Evergreen 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 served each year are Native American or mixed race, 30% are Caucasian, and 10% are African-American, Asian, Hispanic, or mixed race.
