Family & Youth Initiatives

Family & Youth Initiatives (FYI), originally began as Tri-County Women’s Network in 1978. Co-founded by Pat Banaszak and Carol Tipton, its primary goal was to provide free education and support services to struggling teen mothers. In its first 15 years, the Women’s Network served over 1,200 families via three centers in Southwest Ohio.

In 1993, the Women’s Network experienced a 45% surge in requests for pregnancy tests from girls ages 10 to 11. This shocking trend inspired the organization to change its name to FYI and broaden its mission.

FYI now provides several FREE community programs, including:

Women’s Network

Little Scholars

Real-Life Risk Avoidance Education

DEFY Student Mentoring

Adult Development Classes

  • GED, job skills classes, and several other adult development courses.
  • A community garden; nutrition and cooking classes.

It is FYI’s sincere hope that, with the support of our local community, we can continue to offer these services and more to the people within our reach. We want every person who walks in our door – at whatever stage of life – to walk out changed: better equipped to thrive today and have hope for their future.
