  1. The Community Service Network supports youth committed to the Department of Youth Services (DYS) as they transition from secure treatment facilities back to their home or an alternative placement. They work with youths until they “age out” of DYS or end their voluntary services, assisting them to complete their education, gain employment, receive behavioral/mental health and other services.
  2. Gaining Independence For Tomorrow (GIFT)  provides prevention, intervention, support, stabilization and therapeutic services to young girls who are current victims, former victims, or are at high risk of becoming victims of Commercial Sexual Exploitation (CSE).
  3. Being United In Leading our Destiny (BUILD) applies the model used at GIFT, but exclusively serves cisgender males, transgender and gender nonconforming youth who are victims of Commercial Sexual Exploitation and/or sexual assault or are at high risk of becoming victims.
  4. Through RYI’s Dimock Street Lead Agency in Roxbury, they work with the Department of Children and Families (DCF) to facilitate and monitor all contracted youth. They provide family support and stabilization services so that children are not removed from their family or are reunited in a safe and timely manner. They also identify programs for youth that need an alternative placement such as intensive foster care, group care, residential care or independent living.

RYI's staff is multi-cultural and multi-lingual reflecting the culture and language of the youth and families they serve.
