In 2015 HYC relocated our agency headquarters office from Norwalk, where we continue to maintain a satellite office, to Liberty Community Plaza in Unincorporated South Whittier. Liberty Community Plaza is a new, $20 million state-of-the art community center owned and constructed by the County of Los Angeles and operated by HYC.  Our organization serves as the site manager and provides its counseling, treatment and educational programs.  Through this innovative public/private partnership, HYC is working in collaboration with the County to design and implement programs that are responsive to the needs and interests of diverse community members, groups and organizations. 


Besides offering their own classes and programming, HYC also brings new classes and programs to the community using the Liberty Plaza facilities. Call Liberty Plaza or HYC for more information about these FREE programs, including:
