Our Story

Stanford Youth Solutions + Sierra Forever Families officially merged
on July 1, 2019. Both SYS and SFF had complementary missions and
operations, and had extensive history of collaborating to provide
services and supports to youth and families.

SYS+SFF is now a well-established nonprofit agency that has proudly
served our community for a combined total of 150 years. The
merging of our organizations will result in the ability to
provide the highest quality of comprehensive services and a
greater continuum of care for youth and families, who need
specialized services that address mental health, juvenile justice,
foster care and adoptions, post permanency, and family support
services. As a merged organization, we serve 4,500 youth
and their families throughout Northern California.

4,500 youth and families served annually in 17 counties 

Over 150 years combined experience
