YELLOW CITY COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Make a Difference Today

YCCO wants to spread a message of love, hope, and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can have a great impact on the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities we work daily to contribute our part to the greater good.

It is a reality that ending homelessness means that we develop and actively work on a plan that closes the front door.  

During COVID we saw firsthand some of the gaps that lead to the door of homelessness and began shifting our focus to working in the community to close them,  Education and mentorship help achieve a feeling of community, which builds confidence and hope.

  As a community, we can help create a different future, we have the power to stop generational cycles.

Community Development

With this initiative, our goal is to bring a more focused awareness to the prevention of homelessness by educating our participants to be a responsible renter, providing mentorship, and giving a path to homeownership.

 We will provide education on raised bed gardening, giving access to fresh vegetables and herbs, and being a bridge builder in the community.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Helping The Community

With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. We love our neighbors and we love what we do.

We are out in the community daily, supplying needs to our homeless, recently housed individuals and families, and those who are just needing a little extra encouragement, a box of food, or a blanket.

We love gardening, we love providing ease of access by giving the vegetables away in the community.

Encouraging a love for neighborhood and community is a great way to keep our youth in Amarillo.
