Providing for At-Risk Youth

 
Donate

The Youth Resource Bank of Santa Cruz County is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization providing much needed assistance to youth and families throughout Santa Cruz County. Our assistance covers a wide range of pressing needs, from shoes and clothing to child car seats, school supplies, job placements, mental health counseling, and dental and legal services. As the Honorable Judge Robert Yonts stated, “There are little things these kids need, the simplest of things that most of us take for granted.”

YRB accepts requests from organizations and individuals working in the community with at-risk youth, including teachers, public health nurses, social workers, and juvenile counselors. These are the people who understand the patchwork of programs and systems, and who know when a child has fallen between the cracks and needs a little help without red tape. Because of our network of referrals, the YRB serves many children and young adults not covered by various systems and agencies. You can read some of their stories here.

Check It Out

The YRB is funded entirely from the proceeds of a much-loved annual Cabaret and the gifts of generous donors and sponsors. We are operated entirely by a volunteer board with almost no overhead, so the money we raise goes directly to those who need it. We receive five to six requests for aid per week, the vast majority of which are fulfilled.

 

Thank you for helping my family...

Your agency was a first for me and I was treated respectfully and mindfully. This was and is one of the most challenging times of my life, and dealing with support agencies isn’t always this way.”

Thank you for the $100 gift contribution for our student here at Gault School. Your gift brightened our student’s day and she is coming to school today glowing. I sincerely appreciate what the Youth Resource Bank does for our communities and the lift it provides for those in need. This is truly a great organization, ‘filling the gap for children in need.’”

Thank you so much for the kindness you and Youth Resource Bank of Santa Cruz County gave to me and my children. They were so excited when we went to Target to shop.”
