Briarpatch Youth Services provides innovative
services dedicated to strengthening and improving the
lives of youth, their families and our community.



 In Dane County it is estimated that every night approximately  300 youth go to bed homeless. 1 in 3 youth will be approached for sex in exchange for food, shelter, drugs, etc. within 48 hours of leaving home, 75% of these youth have already or will drop out of school. These are good kids in bad situations and they need our help. At Briarpatch we work with these youth to make sure they have the resources and support they need in order to succeed. Learn more here
