Lakes Center for Youth & Families
Working to Ensure the Success of Youth and Families
Formerly, the Lakes Area Youth Service Bureau, Lakes Center for Youth & Families (LC4YF) serves residents of the Forest Lake Area School District (portions of Washington & Anoka Counties) and all of Chisago County.
In 1976, a group of concerned citizens, law enforcement officers and educators came together in to create the Forest Lake Youth Service Bureau, a diversion service to keep first time young offenders from re-offending.
Be a Part of the Next 40 Years!
After leasing our current space from the City of Forest Lake for the past 20 years, LC4YF must now move. We have purchased a space in the Town Square Building in downtown Forest Lake! Now, we need your help for a seamless transition so we can continue to provide our services to the community that we have done so well for the past 40 years!
