What We Do

Many of the children we serve at Alexander Youth Network have never had enough. Not enough love, food, shelter, and safety. For varied reasons, relationships with the adults in their lives have not been positive. That’s where Alexander comes in. We provide a safe space for children to heal and learn how to trust again. Unlike other mental health providers, we offer a full continuum of care – meaning that a child has a treatment team of caring adults that stay with them throughout the healing process. Through the help of donors and friends, Alexander served over 10,000 children in 2022 across 71 counties. For more information, visit
