Southeast Youth and Family Services (SEYFS) has been a YDEKC Member organization since 2011, and Executive Director Anthony Austin joined the YDEKC Advisory Board in 2018. Anthony now co-chairs YDEKC's Advocacy Committee. Since 1974, SEYFS has worked to lead young people, their parents, and caregivers on a path to healing, hope, and healthier lives. As a Black-led organization, SEYFS acknowledges that systemic racism has caused deep and lasting trauma to the youth and families we serve, especially those in Black, Indigenous, and communities of color — who live in unrelenting fear of police violence.

The mission of SEYFS is to assist children, youth, and families in achieving safe, self-sufficient, and stable lives. SEYFS provides comprehensive early learning and mental health services based on the needs and strengths of the people who turn to us for help. They are a licensed mental health center and provide skilled, evidence-based, best-practice mental health treatment and prevention services.
