    Who We are

    Hoyleton Youth and Family Services was established in 1895 to care for orphaned children of a cholera epidemic.  It has grown to be a community provider of emotional and mental health services for every stage of child and family development throughout southern Illinois.

    Our focus is simple… One Child at a Time.  We help to restore family relationships; prepare young adults to make positive life decisions and become productive citizens.   We are Building Stronger Communities through programs that strengthen and preserve families.

    Whether through reunification, adoption or developing the life skills to stand on their own, our goal is always to help children and families find a forever place they can call home. Grounded by faith and the traditions of the United Church of Christ, we make a positive impact on over 2,000 lives each year.

Our Mission

seeks to enable all people, young and old alike, to realize the wholeness of life that God intends. This will be accomplished with the compassion of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit reaching out to meet the physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and social needs of those with whom we journey.
