Evergreen House is now doing business as Evergreen Youth & Family Services. Evergreen's Board approved this name change in early 2011 to reflect our unique niche in the Greater Bemidji Area and region. Our legal name change, logo and website changes will take effect later in 2011. Evergreen Youth & Family Services is a community-based organization committed to strengthening youth and preserving families with an emphasis on those living in Northern Minnesota. Evergreen Youth & Family Services believes that communities are strongest when every individual is treated with dignity and respect and has support to achieve his/her full human potential. Evergreen House chooses to remain client-centered with an emphasis on being responsive to each individual and families' needs while maintaining a high level of professionalism, compassion and empathy. We operate from a position of hope, faith and support. Our services and perspective are often grassroots in nature and it is because of our strong relationships and resources that Evergreen House remains a catalyst in the region for proactive services, education and advocacy.
