Challenge

During the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis, LAYC continues to serve over 5,000 youth and families annually and is responding to evolving needs of vulnerable members of our community who already face complex challenges and are at risk of financial and food insecurity. Many youth we serve are unstably housed, have substance use or mental health issues, and limited access to resources. Their needs are increasing at this time, adding further barriers to their long-term health and well-being.

Solution

Your gift will allow us to meet diverse needs of youth and families in these unprecedented times. Staff are providing "telehealth" video-chat counseling and support to youth in need and online academic support for students. We have scheduled diaper pick-ups and drop-offs for families, and daily follow-ups and check-ins. We continue to connect homeless youth to shelters. Activities will help keep youth safe, ensure food and basic needs are met, manage youth anxieties, and minimize learning loss.

Long-Term Impact

With your help, youth will remain safe and access food and supplies that ensure resilience to financial hardship. Academic support will help students advance in their learning while schools are closed, including those working toward a GED. We are uncertain of the duration of this pandemic and the impact it will have on employment and household financial security. It is imperative we continue to be a beacon of hope to everyone we serve through consistent care, service, and resource connections.
