About Us

Northern Oklahoma Youth Services (NOYS) has been in continuous operation in Kay County since 1972. Over this forty year period we have operated an emergency youth shelter and dozens of preventive programs designed to support families and children by decreasing the occurrence of child abuse and neglect, family violence, teen pregnancy and juvenile delinquency.


NOYS' primary service area is Kay, Noble, and Pawnee Counties, with the primary facility and youth shelter located in Ponca City, Ok. Services are provided free of charge to our clients. Local funding is used to match and enhance State grants and contracts that supply major funding for our programs.
