Youth for Tomorrow, originally known as Paul Anderson Youth Home, was established as a non-profit, residential program in 1960 to serve homeless children
and was located in Lewisville, Texas. The program was reorganized in 1985 and renamed Youth for Tomorrow (YFT). In 1988, the YFT Board of Directors closed the program, which remained a legal but dormant organization until November 1990.
In November 1990, the Board of Directors responded to a Request for Proposals to provide LOC support services to the Texas Department of Family & Protective Services (DFPS). DFPS awarded the contract to YFT effective January 1, 1991. YFT is a private, non-profit organization.
