St. Augustine Youth Services receives donation from Florida Federation of Fairs


St. Augustine Youth Services (SAYS) recently received a donation from The Florida Federation of Fairs’ Young Professionals initiative (YPI) as part of its “Give Back” campaign. YPI accepted donations for things such as bedding and school supplies from the St. Augustine community during the Florida Federation of Fairs’ 2016 convention.

After collecting cash donations and other necessities for SAYS, a $4,000 check was presented to the organization at the Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village.

For 27 years, SAYS has provided residential group homes for boys 6 to 18 years old diagnosed with medical health issues, many of whom suffered severe abuse and neglect. Aiming to foster their growth and healing, SAYS provides therapeutic treatment and a structured environment to help them work through that trauma. SAYS also provides psychiatric services, social skills training and psychological consultation among other necessary training and services.
