Project Youth OC works extensively in the community to bring agencies together, create an extended service network, fill the gaps in existing services, and to allow for more effective support and cooperation among providers. Acting as the bridge between our clients and these community resources, project staff serve as cultural brokers to assist clients to access these referral agencies, keep their appointments, and stay in services. Throughout our successful history we have built long-standing partnerships with local service providers to support at-risk youth and their families. At Project Youth OC, we believe that through a collective impact we can successfully bring critical services to our most vulnerable youth and families in Orange County. We are so grateful to our follow partners for their support over the years:
