Community and Homeless Services

In our Community Services Programs, HYC works with at-risk and high-risk youth and their family members, including youth on probation or who are at risk of justice system involvement, to build life skills, practice pro-social behaviors, and discover constructive alternatives to delinquency. HYC program staff serve as positive adult role models, give youth one-on-one attention, and establish a climate of safety and trust for youth and families. Our Homeless Services Program delivers one-on-one
street outreach and coordinated housing and service interventions for homeless individuals and families living on the streets in Vernon, Bell, Bell Gardens, Commerce, Cudahy, Huntington Park, Maywood and South Gate, with the goal of achieving permanent housing stability.
