Just last year, over 200,000 youth experienced homelessness in California.
YOU can help us serve Disconnected, Runaway and Homeless Youth by donating to the California Coalition for Youth!
The California Coalition for Youth (CCY) is a statewide grassroots nonprofit organization that serves disconnected youth ages 12-24 throughout the state. Your donation helps the ongoing operation and expansion of the the California Youth Crisis Line, the cornerstone program of CCY.
The California Youth Crisis Line is
California’s only 24-hour-a-day/7-days-a-week hotline available specifically to youth and their families to provide counseling and resource referrals on a multitude of issues, including homelessness.
Our mission is to improve and empower the lives of California's youth.
Most young people have problems or worries, and when that happens, they need someone to talk to – someone to confide in about what’s happening in their lives who will listen without judgment and provide them with the vital resources and support they may need. At the California Youth Crisis Line (CYCL), we hear you.
CYCL is California’s only 24-hour-a-day/7-days-a-week hotline available specifically to youth and their families to provide counseling and resource referrals on a multitude of issues, including homelessness, suicide, sexual assault/rape, domestic or relationship violence, cutting, human trafficking, LGTBQ issues, and more.
Your support helps us continue to provide much needed, high-quality counseling and resource referrals for homeless and other youth who call our crisis line. Simply give what you can... because truly, every little bit helps.
$10 pays for us to answer one crisis call.
$25 supports an overnight crisis counselor.
$100 helps us train one volunteer crisis counselor.
$500 helps a formerly homeless youth serve on our Board of Directors.
We appreciate your generous support and helping us continue to serve California's youth.
Best wishes this holiday season,
The CCY Team
