Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. YCCO emerged out of a pursuit to give a voice to, inspire and support the homeless in our community; and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Established in 2015, we are an organization driven by progressive ideas and bold actions.
YCCO will be directing a specific focus to remove barriers that exist for our homeless, and at risk. We intend to provide more ease of access to existing education, employment, addiction services, and affordable housing options, and where there are gaps we will develop a solution and implement it. We will not only work to prevent and end homelessness, but our work will also enhance neighborhood revitalization efforts.
Access to what is required to fulfill one's own basic needs no matter their circumstances will establish self-worth, and inspire hope.
Building a strong community has generational outcomes that can effectively shut the front door to homelessness by stopping the flow.
" do good, better."
