Program Highlight

FAMILY RESOURCE CENTERS

The pandemic, environmental extremes and widening economic disparities have exacerbated the contributors to social inequity.

"Six months ago, I was at the bottom of my life. I had never had that many problems and difficulties come to me together. I had visited so many institutions and ended up empty."

The Y’s Family Resource Centers (FRCs) serve as a hub for connecting individuals and families with a network of YMCA programs and local resources that address prevalent issues such as joblessness, food and housing insecurity, and other barriers to wellbeing.

"Just when both my mind and body could no longer stand, a social worker in Chinatown suggested that I go to the YMCA and give it a try.

Our comprehensive services are geared to be responsive and flexible enough to address each family’s unique needs.

"The YMCA used their expertise to help me apply for different financial assistance programs. From the government, I received $6,000 which helped me solve all kind of difficulties in life and regain the happy laughter in our family."
