Together, We are Building a New Center for Kids

The Youth Center’s new home will allow us to expand our mission for years to come.

We cannot do it alone. Please help us create fun new project spaces and labs.

We want to build a state-of-the art facility for children in our community. A safe, welcoming place that they can grow and thrive.

As a nonprofit, our funds are limited, so we need your help! We have been in this community since 1952 and are surviving on donated furniture and equipment. It’s time for the kids to start fresh!

Donations of any amount are welcome!

The YC Programs

Since 1952, The Youth Center has served over 100,000 local families. Our mission is to transform children’s lives one family at a time through collaborative social, educational and recreational programs.
