We Need Your Support

We’d like to share some staggering statistics that will show you the reality of what some of our local youth are facing on a daily basis. In some cases, their time with us is the only time in their day where they feel safe, secure and happy. We’re sometimes the only positive influence these kids have, and we take that very seriously. But we can’t be there for these kids without the help of our Community.

Happy Kids, Happy Thoughts, Happy Actions!

Having a positive place to go, with positive people to encourage and help, means these kids have a better chance of succeeding. If you look at the statistics, it’s abundantly clear that having a positive place, or lack thereof, directly affects test scores, which we all know affects their future.

“At the Valley Youth Center, we want fun, enjoyment, and happiness to be the source of their reasoning, instead of anger, so that the choices they make at home, in school, or in the community will also be in line with positive intentions of having fun, enjoying oneself and being happy.”
