Everstand is more than a name, it’s our commitment.



We stand as a beacon for youth and families, equipping them with vital tools that build resiliency for life’s greatest challenges.

With roots dating back 150 years, we pledge to stand beside, stand up for, and stand strong with those we serve.

How we help

Our holistic range of services includes:


Our safe, supportive living environments are designed to meet the diverse backgrounds and needs of youth in our care. Each resident receives integrated medical, behavioral health, educational, and life skills development tailored to their individual needs.

Mental & Behavioral Health

Comprehensive, holistic support strengthens the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of youth and families in our care. These vital resources are delivered through integrated programs or standalone, outpatient-style clinics ensuring flexibility and accessibility for all.


Tailored educational pathways and specialized settings equip youth with knowledge and critical thinking skills to forge bright futures.

Trauma Recovery

Empathy guides our programming and culture at all levels. Through a person-first and a trauma-informed approach, we validate individual experiences and collaborate together to create a path forward.

Case Management

Case management and referral services allow youth and their families to make an informed decision about the tools and resources they need. Beyond document management, we help navigate complex care systems and provide guidance on how to access vital resources for success.

Enriching communities, one family at a time.

When, as a community, we make sure that everyone can reach their potential and fully contribute to our communities, we all benefit. Maximizing the potential of children, people who are our neighbors, our workforce, and our civic body ensures that our communities remain vibrant places to live, work, and play.


Our Core Values

Everstand’s community is comprised of program participants, employees, board of directors, and volunteers. Our values guide each of those stakeholders in how to behave and are structured to ensure that they are at the forefront of every decision and action. See some of our past core value award winners and their stories here.


SAFETY as a mindset

We value life, spirit, and health above all else and take action to maintain the safety of our workplaces, programs, and services through a trauma-responsive lens. We are personally accountable for our own safety and collectively responsible for the mental, emotional, and physical safety of our community.

Foster RELATIONSHIPS within our Community

Openness and honesty with all stakeholders make for both the best program outcomes and team culture. Inclusive practices are the building blocks for trust. We create space for conversations that grow transparency about our decisions, promises, and understanding of one another.

Listen and respond with EMPATHY

Empathy will guide our programming and culture at all levels. A supportive work and program environment means valuing the voices of all people, ensuring equitable representation, and growing a desire to know and understand others. We recognize that with empathy we will better understand what type of care and encouragement to provide.

IMPACT drives lasting change

We seek to make lasting change in the lives of those we work with by providing services that are inclusive, measurable, and durable. We maximize our impact by investing in staff and board development. Feedback presents an opportunity for action, which enhances and strengthens our programs and their outcomes.
