Youth program help

The city of Paso Robles Housing Authority would like to thank Central Coast Funds for Children for its contribution to our YouthWorks program. CCFC members work hard all year to raise money to support programs assisting the youth of San Luis Obispo County. The Paso Robles Housing Authority YouthWorks program was one of the many organizations this year that benefited from their generosity.

For the past five years, YouthWorks has served more than 150 boys and girls in north Paso Robles. The program provides homework assistance, academic enrichment, character development, job skills training, an array of art and creative projects, healthy snacks, sports and dance activities. YouthWorks harnesses the tremendous power of cascading mentorship as our littlest ones are tutored and guided by YouthWorks teens and young adults who in turn are mentored by Youth-Works graduates.

We are grateful to CCFC for its donation and encouragement. CCFC members are a gift to our county and our youth.
