Family Services

Fill A Backpack

The Youth Bureau works with local citizens, businesses and organizations to provide back to school supplies to disadvantaged youth each September. 174 students in grades K-12 receive back to school supplies from this program for the current school year.

Food Pantry

The Youth Bureau operates a small food pantry throughout the year. We provide non-perishable food items on a regular basis to families in need.

Social Service Assistance

The Youth Bureau refers families to social service agencies for assistance. In addition, staff is available to assist in filling out forms and reviewing material before clients meet with agency officials. Clients are also referred to local thrift stores for clothing and household needs and to Rotary rides for medical transportation assistance.

Thanksgiving /Holiday Baskets

Each year the Glen Cove youth works in collaboration with other local social service agencies to provide families with a holiday dinner. Last year,the Youth Bureau provided dinner to over 125 families consisting of over 35 people. Distribution is coordinated with public school social workers and other social agencies to assure that as many families as possible receive a feast for the holidays.
