Renew Hope. Inspire Change.
 "My name is Renee F. and I was at David & Margaret in 1989. When I was placed there I was angry, fought with everyone, and my sister had just died. I was in Lowery Cottage. I am still in contact with staff there, appreciate all they did for me, and someday I am going to write a book for young girls on how to overcome problems. I am 34 years old, happily married and the mother of four children. I am just starting school to become a Psychiatric Technician so I can help people the way I was helped."

Welcome to David & Margaret Youth and Family Services located in La Verne, California.

We have a successful track record of providing more than 1,000 clients annually a comprehensive range of services. We provide a residentially-based program and shelter care for adolescent girls, a foster family agency, adoption assistance, mental health services, treatment for learning disabilities, a transitional living program, and school- and community-based education and programs. Additionally, we also have a chemical dependency program that is certified by the State of California for residents who are recovering from substance abuse.
