The Supporting Youth Victims program provides resource, support and services to all youth from the ages of 6-17 that have been impacted directly or in-directly from the opioid crisis. Through our developed partnerships with Lancaster School District, Tarzana Treatment Centers, Bartz Altadonna, Young People in Recovery (YPR), and AV Youth Opioid Coalition, we provide case management, mentoring, life skill workshops (virtual and in-person), and events directed to meet the youth’s needs and interest.


The Ready to Rise Program, is an expansion to the Supporting Youth Victims program to increase services to the youth in the Antelope Valley from the ages of 11 to 24.  The goal is to provide an established comprehensive, community driven and multidisciplinary response to youth who are or have been in the juvenile system.  Partners include: Probation, Lancaster School District, Lancaster Sheriff Station, and Making Appropriate Choices Coalition.


With the United Way grant, AVPH plans to increase the rates of low-income students who graduate from high school prepared for college and a career. AVPH has provided career speakers and workshops to multiple schools in the AV. Partners:
