A little about the YRB:
Providing for At-Risk Youth
The Youth Resource Bank of Santa Cruz County is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization providing much needed assistance to youth and families throughout Santa Cruz County. Our assistance covers a wide range of pressing needs, from shoes and clothing to child car seats, school supplies, job placements, mental health counseling, and dental and legal services. As the Honorable Judge Robert Yonts stated, “There are little things these kids need, the simplest of things that most of us take for granted.”
YRB accepts requests from organizations and individuals working in the community with at-risk youth, including teachers, public health nurses, social workers, and juvenile counselors. These are the people who understand the patchwork of programs and systems, and who know when a child has fallen between the cracks and needs a little help without red tape. Because of our network of referrals, the YRB serves many children and young adults not covered by various systems and agencies
