Established in 1972, Pivot, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that advocates, educates, intervenes and counsels youth and families to make a positive difference in their lives.


  • The Challenge

    There are youth in our community who lack the building blocks to help them succeed. This puts them at risk for becoming homeless, unemployed, engaging in alcohol and drug abuse, unplanned pregnancies, as well as untreated mental health issues. The more life skills, resources and support young people have, the more likely they are to become self-sufficient adults.

  • Who We Serve

    Pivot works with young people lacking stability in their lives. They are sometimes homeless or couch homeless, alone or disengaged. Many live with damaging labels and shame. Almost all are ages 12 to 21 and have overwhelming barriers in their lives without the resources to overcome them and successfully transition into self-reliant adults.

  • The Solution

    Pivot provides programs and services that focus on meeting housing and basic needs; education and job assistance; mentoring and life skills development; prevention and intervention services; and therapeutic care. Pivot takes a youth-driven, strengths based, trauma responsive approach to empowering youth to transition into self-sufficient adults. We are a turning point for youth.
