“Our youth are faced with the greatest challenges ever endured by the rising generation.  BYS provides services that allow young people to navigate these troubled waters.  I have personally spoken to several youth who have taken advantage of the services provided and without them, they feel that there would have been very little hope of improving.  Supporting BYS is crucial in the healthy development of our young people.”

-Matt Hamner, Chief of Police, Bainbridge Island
