Sabrina Davis, President/CEO of Inspirational Youth Services Inc., has a very dynamic background in the social services industry. As a former Executive Director for a non-profit and state agency, with over 17 years of mental health case management experience, and as a former foster parent herself, Ms. Davis knows the business. These experiences give Ms. Davis the patience and understanding needed to deliver the highest level of care to the foster parents and children IYS serves. As a foster parent, Davis took pride in providing love and care to children who needed it most. She provided a strong, positive, stable environment for the children in her care and watched as they flourished into young adults. Becoming a positive force in the lives of children was her inspiration. Her passion for helping children coupled with Ms. Davis’s strong entrepreneurial drive sparked a fire inside her and in 2006; Inspirational Youth Service Therapeutic Foster Care Agency was born.
In a perfect world, every child would be nurtured by a loving family, attend a challenging and exciting school and live in a supportive community. But the sad reality is that not every child has these opportunities. Every year almost one million children in the United States are victims of neglect or abuse. There are about 581,000 children in foster care and more than 125,000 are available for adoption. Founder Sabrina Davis, saw a need to serve our children and Inspirational Youth Services Inc. was established. IYS Inc. has been serving the children of Virginia ever since, a longevity that is a testament to our ability to adapt to the ever-changing needs of today’s youth.
Today, Inspirational Youth Services, Inc. is a privately owned child-driven, therapeutic foster care child placement agency, providing therapeutic foster care throughout the State of Virginia to a diverse group of children with complex needs.
