MEMPHIS — Katairena Bliss of Cleveland was selected for an internship at Youth Villages, a private nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children and families live successfully.

Headquartered in Memphis, Youth Villages this year will help more than 22,000 children and families in 11 states and Washington, D.C., through a wide array of programs, including intensive in-home services, residential treatment, foster care and adoption, transitional living services, mentoring and crisis services.
