YOP Overview

Anyone with a Missouri Tax Liability can qualify for YOP Tax Credits

Your donation of $1,000 or more supports Places for People’s Youth and Family Services program, and also reduces your Missouri tax liability by 50% of the total contribution, which makes the out of pocket cost only a fraction of the original donation.

Places for People’s YOP program ends December 31, 2019.

Places for People’s YOP project will serve 100 youth ages 14-21 in by December 2019, helping participants build resilience, skills and positive support systems to transition successfully to adulthood. Participants will often have a history of behavioral health problems, including issues that may have resulted in court interventions.

Our goal in our youth and family services is to assist youth who exhibit behavioral disorders by connecting them with proper resources and to address the surrounding family/environmental issues that pose a threat to a healthy process of transitioning through youth to adulthood. A key to all of our youth and family services is that we use all of the youth’s natural resources to affect positive change. Participants have access to a wide array of evidence-based practices and wrap-around services provided by Places for People’s dedicated staff.

Partners in the 21st Judicial Circuit Family Court and the 22nd Judicial Circuit Family Court are the primary referral sources for this project. Services are provided at a duration and intensity determined by an assessment of need.

Your support of this project can make a profound difference at a critical juncture of a youth’s life.
