Briarpatch Youth Services, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization serving Dane County.  The agency’s mission is:

Strengthening the Lives of Youth and Families

The organization was formed in 2003 by the merger of Briarpatch, Inc. (established 1971) and Community Adolescent Programs, Inc. (established 1978).  Project HUGS (established 1995) joined the agency in 2009.  The agency offers a broad array of services to runaway, homeless, and at-risk youth.  Briarpatch works closely with local governments and other non-profit organizations to provide unique programs that fill service gaps.  Each year, Briarpatch serves approximately 3,000 unduplicated youth.
