ABOUT PIONEER

Pioneer Youth & Adult Community Services is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.

Pioneer Youth & Adult Community Services (PYACS) has been in operations since 1995. We are ethnic owned, private, therapeutic foster care agency providing support, family mentoring and mental health services to children/youth and their families who have been victims of unfavorable circumstances.

PYACS mission is to assist each youth/adult toward the realization of their individual potential at the same time promoting positive changes, independence and resourcefulness.

Our primary goal is to assist each youth/adult for permanency and to be reunified with their families when possible or to provide other placement options that would best support their needs.

PYACS treatment foster care families’ goals are to care for the needs of the child/youth in their homes and communities, reduce the need for hospitalization and to prevent more restrictive placements. The treatment foster care families’ focus on providing the most stable, normalized, consistent environment that supports the youth’s potential by building on their strengths in a limited-time period.

PYACS philosophy is that services must be an integrated team approach that are child centered, family focused, strength based, and culturally competent with the focus on permanency. PYACS shelters and provide treatment for over 150 children/adults and their families a year and have 65 treatment homes throughout Utah.
