MaineStay Youth & Family Services

The mission of MaineStay Youth & Family Services is to support the growth of healthier families in the Maine Township community by providing affordable strength-based counseling and comprehensive programs focused on prevention and education. We have been serving our community since 1975. All our programs are either free or low-cost and no one will be turned away due to inability to pay. Our counseling services are available to those who live or attend school in Maine Township. Some of our groups are also available to non-township residents for a higher fee.


MaineStay offers high-quality, compassionate counseling services for the whole family. Our family therapists use a respectful, strength-based counseling approach designed to assist you in meeting your goals as quickly as possible. We work with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. Services are available in both English, Spanish, and Polish at a reduced cost using a sliding fee scale. Learn more...
