Welcome

Youth for Tomorrow Foundation (YFT) is a not for profit behavioral health care company in Texas providing quality assurance and utilization review management. YFT serves public agency children in need of residential services in private contract care. YFT supports more than 12,000 children placed in Texas and in other States. These children are served by more than 200 providers.

This Internet resource is intended to assist families, child care professionals, and others who are searching for information about Texas children and for placements for children.
