about us

Youth Unlimited Inc was founded in 2016 by Seattle native April Johnson.

Youth Unlimited Inc is an organization committed to providing culturally responsive therapeutic foster care and advocacy services. We’re an organization embedded in our own community. We’ve tirelessly served children and families in communities of color across decades.

At Youth Unlimited Inc, our children feel they belong. Children are not socially and culturally isolated. Instead, our children are provided resources and support that respect their cultural needs. At Youth Unlimited Inc, our children are seen, our children are heard, our children are celebrated.

Our deep ties to communities of color in Oregon gives us the unique ability to give our children lasting, positive connections with their community well into adulthood.
