With Youth, Through Adversity

Side by Side is a community-based, non-profit organization serving at-risk young people and their families.


Our mission is to walk with young people impacted by adversity toward a future with connection and meaning.

About our new name

About our new name

In our search for a new name, we talked to staff and clients about their work together, and the phrase “side by side” came up again and again. The experience of our direct care staff is of walking with the young person through their journey – not leading or following but meeting them where they are without judgment or hierarchy.

About our new name


Join us for a variety of events and fundraisers throughout the year, including gala evenings, a golf tournament and community dine-and-donate events.

Our 2018 Reach for the Stars event on Saturday, September 22, was a roaring success, raising over $191k for Side by Side!

Check out the event photos!
Our recent grant to Esser House was approved based on Side by Side’s long experience and commitment to helping vulnerable young people.
