Welcome to Harborcreek Youth Services 

Harborcreek Youth Services (HYS) was founded in 1911 and has a history of service to the community that spans over 100 years.  HYS provides a range of residential and in-home services to children and their families.  The HYS Residential program accepts youth from multiple counties throughout the state of Pennsylvania who are in need of intensive and effective therapeutic services.  Our Multisystemic Therapy Program and the CRR-Host Home program accept youth from Erie County.

The agency is a fully accredited child and family social service agency in compliance with all statutory requirements set by the Department of Public Welfare (DPW) and the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS). 

These requirements are consistent with agency efforts over the past decade in prioritizing the delivery of science-based services, including the Sanctuary Model of Care and  Trauma-Informed Care Practice Models. 

We have implemented a new client health information system and continue our commitment to client confidentiality and improved internal processes while adhering to strict HIPPA regulations.  We will also continue our Performance and Quality Improvement Program of extensive data collection and outcome measurement for all agency sites and programs.

We are grateful to be part of this community and for your support as we work to help kids and their families succeed.
