Tidewater Youth Services Foundation

The TYS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1991 to raise funds and find community resources to support a public agency, Tidewater Youth Services Commission, in its efforts to help at-risk and court-involved youth grow into productive members of the community. Our public partner, “the Commission,” serves the cities of Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Franklin, as well as Isle of Wight and Southampton Counties. These seven localities formed the agency in 1977 in an effort to coordinate needed services for the juvenile population, thus avoiding a duplication of services in the region. In over 45 years of operation, the Commission has developed a broad range of programs and services and is now the region’s primary resource for juvenile justice services.
