Genesis Youth Crisis Center, Inc.'s services include emergency shelter care, foster care and adoption services and community based services.
Providing a therapeutic environment comprised of group interaction, life skills and behavior management, our 2 shelters offer crisis support to over 200 youth from all 55 WV counties each year.
In an effort to "provide a safe haven" to more of West Virginia's youth and to aid a needed population we expanded services into foster care and adoption, as it is our belief, every child deserves to be nurtured and supported by a stable and loving family.
Supporting children and families is at the very heart of our mission, and with that in mind, our newest program, involves working within our community to provide support and resources to
families and youth in order to provide a positive and supportive environment in their home.
We believe that we can help children and families thrive by helping them to develop the skills necessary to function together, with the ultimate goal being permanency. – less
