About Us

Over 50 Years of Serving El Dorado County

24-Hour Emergency Youth Shelter and Counseling Services

For over 50 years, New Morning has provided a safety net of services to youth and their families in El Dorado County. These services include the 24-hour Emergency Youth Shelter (the only one in El Dorado County) for homeless and runaway youth. We have programs to support alcohol and drug treatment for adolescents, counseling and support for pregnant and parenting teens, and counseling for high-risk youth (youth who are abused, suicidal, experiencing school failure, runaway or thrown out of their home, or engaging in delinquent behavior).

How New Morning Serves Our Community

We provide food, clothing, and shelter to runaway and homeless children as well as children and youth who are detained by the court. Reaching out to abused and neglected children, we offer residential and professional support and services to children.

New Morning Youth and Family Services (NMYFS) has been serving the community of El Dorado County for 52 years. Initially created by a group of concerned citizens who saw many youth experimenting with illicit drugs, NMYFS has evolved into a full service behavioral health/child welfare organization.

With dedicated workers who are passionate about changing lives, New Morning has a long standing reputation in the community to help the underserved and unserved populations of El Dorado County. Our programs include: Latino Outreach, Foster Youth Launch, and Summer Employment Internships.

We’re here to help you not just quit but to recover and overcome your addictive lifestyle. You can change your life and become a person who is happy with themself.

Kid-driven and a lot of fun, the QYAP will help you make lasting friendships, cultivate a feeling of belonging, and strengthen your self worth. Give us a call. What are you waiting for?
