Making your donation today helps a child in need!
Parenting is hard work and a job in which you never stop learning and growing. We all experience life’s challenges and struggles in unique ways. These experiences shape us into the person we will eventually become.
As an established member of the community, Outreach Teen & Family Services has been providing counseling services and programs for more than four decades, focusing on empowerment, prevention, education, and early intervention. We believe in supporting parents and providing them with the education and tools necessary as they navigate the ages and stages of their children.
The Supporter Program is for people who value children and families and share our desire to help every child, teen and family we serve to thrive. Your financial investment, as well as your advocacy, helps neighbors to grow and achieve their dreams.

Outreach 5.0 – Endowment Initiative
In 2024, Outreach Teen and Family Services will celebrate half a century as a trusted, valued community resource, offering accessible, affordable, professional counseling and educational programs to youth, ages 5-21 and their families.
Since its founding in 1974, Outreach has evolved to meet changing needs—and those needs continue to grow. The main reasons clients come to Outreach today are anxiety and depression, as well as behavioral adjustment and family issues. Depression alone has risen 30% recently. Close to 80% of those who need treatment for mental health can’t find it or receive substandard care. That makes Outreach’s community based counseling services essential.
Our goal is to raise at least $300,000 by Outreach’s 50th anniversary in 2024, creating an Endowment Fund at the Mt. Lebanon Community Foundation to support Outreach’s mission by ensuring subsidies for those in need; a comfortable, welcoming facility for clients; and an engaged, highly professional staff.
Perhaps Outreach helped your child or your family benefited from its programs. If not, you probably know someone Outreach has positively affected. And even if you don’t know who that someone might be, rest assured Outreach has helped make our community a safer, healthier place.
