Resources for all of Macomb County
Family Youth Interventions (FYI) was founded in 1975 as Macomb County Youth Interim Care Facility (MCYICF), a component of Comprehensive Youth Services, Inc. (CYS). MCYICF opened its’ doors to the first client in spring of 1976 at the convent of St. Mark’s Church in Warren. In the mid-90’s, the agency changed its’ name to Family Youth Interventions. In 2000, FYI located to Mount Clemens to be more centrally located within the county. FYI started to expand in 2005 with a grant accepted for a Homeless Youth Program which provides housing, counseling, case management services and life skills. In 2006, a grant was approved for the Street Outreach Program (SOP) which initially operated out of the residential building. In the spring of 2007, the SOP relocated to our new drop-in center called the Refuge. And in 2009, the Homeless Youth Program was expanded to include a residential program which opened to residents in March of ’11. Family Youth Interventions has always been the only organization of its kind in Macomb County. We work closely with counseling agencies, the Macomb County Juvenile Court, Children’s Protective Services, schools and psychiatric hospitals. We will accept young people from any county and have even assisted youth from out of state. Anyone can make a referral to any of our programs. We are non-profit organization and our programs are of no cost to our youth and families, however we do rely heavily on donations from families and the community so we can provide the best possible resources for our youth and families in need.
